Subject [jira] Commented: (JCR-599) Allow to inherit workspace configuration from repository level template
Date Thu, 26 Oct 2006 13:49:19 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-599?page=comments#action_12444893 ] 
Przemo Pakulski commented on JCR-599:

You' re right, all our use cases are administrative tasks.
By introducing this feature most of these troublesomes tasks can be simplified or avoided
at all.

Creation of workspace is also admistrative task and can be done manually. 
Can you explain what's the reason of introducing workspace config template and createWorkspace
method ?
IMO it was probably also to simplify this task, wasn't it ?

>                 Key: JCR-599
>                 URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-599
>             Project: Jackrabbit
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: config
>    Affects Versions: 1.0, 1.0.1, 1.1, 0.9
>            Reporter: Przemo Pakulski
>            Priority: Minor
> RepositoryConfig file contains section with template for Workspace config. This template
is used to create new workspace using jackrabbit internal api, and new workspace configuration
file is created based on this template.
> Probably in most scenarios common configuration for all workspaces is used. If you need
to make some configuration changes then you have to iterate through each workspace and edit
each config file separately.
> It is quit easy task if you are using local file system, but can be hard if other file
systems are used (for example using DbFileSystem editing blobs in database is required).
> Our proposal to make some improvement here and allow to inherit workspace configuration
by reading it from repository level template. Change made in repository config file will be
reflected auomaticallly in all worskpaces then.
> Feature details :
> - if workspace.xml file doesn't exists it can be inherited (read and created in memory
from template), no workspace.xml file must be generated,
> - you can still override workspace config by creating workspace.xml file by hand, then
this file will be used instead of template,
> - if required additional parameter 'inheritConfig' can be added with default value 'false'
to keep current behaviour
> and workspace config inheritance will work only if this parameter is set to 'true'.
> We are working on this feature, and we will contribute patch.
