Subject [jira] Created: (JCR-542) Allow the removal of an item even if its schema has changed
Date Fri, 11 Aug 2006 00:47:14 GMT
Allow the removal of an item even if its schema has changed

                 Key: JCR-542
                 URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-542
             Project: Jackrabbit
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: core
    Affects Versions: 1.0.1
            Reporter: Florent Guillaume
            Priority: Minor

During schema migrations, it is often the case that an item definition changes. For instance,
a property may move from type Long to type String.
However when jackrabbit is restarted, it's impossible to remove any node having "old" properties:

        at org.apache.jackrabbit.core.ItemImpl.remove(ItemImpl.java:1034)

I don't understand enough of the internals to know if it's easy, but could something be made
more lenient to allow such removals?
