Subject [jira] Commented: (JCR-535) Ignore root node when importing through sysView
Date Thu, 19 Oct 2006 14:37:36 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-535?page=comments#action_12443540 ] 
Nicolas Toper commented on JCR-535:


Here is what the spec states about importing root node in Workspace.importXML() (with a system

equivalent to importing into the Session and then calling save
since save always operates according to UUID (plus relative path,
for non-referenceables). In both cases the result is that the root
node of the workspace will be replaced along with its subtree (i.e.,
the whole workspace), just as if the root node had been altered
through the normal getNode, change, save cycle."

Just to make sure I have understood it correctly, this means root UUID can be altered in JR
if we implement it. Am I correct? If yes, is it OK for JR (I thought this specific UUID was
hard coded)?

Also if we implement it, what about protected node, should they be removed too? (/jcr:system
will be explicitely excluded from the removal of course)

Thanks for your explanations :)

> When importing through a sysView, we should ignore the root node. It is in the sysView
to provide a root XML node, but the importer is going to attach it to the repository"s root
node... Which would create another root node and often raise exception. This is a know issue
> I needed this behavior to change for the backup tool, since I use the sysView. Therefore,
I havce slightly updated the WorkspaceImporter. Maybe I should update too the SessionImporter
so we have a consistant behavior. What do you think?
