Subject [jira] Commented: (JCR-644) Node.isNodeType() throws if namespace is not defined.

David Nuescheler commented on JCR-644:

I think that the  would initially setup his namespaces to be mapped on a session basis to
whatever makes sense for the application and then use literals throughout the application.
basically i think that a client that does not map its namespaces on a per session basis is
>From my perspective I would assume that once the namespaces are mapped, I would like to
work in my application code 
using "static/hardwired"-prefixes only. I think that this makes the code much more readable.

With respect to the isNodeType() I would then expect it to fail without an exeception specific
to the unknown prefix 
much like a query operation that uses an unregistered nodetype or any other read operation
for that matter.
I guess from an application perspective I would even assume a getItem("/unknownprefix:bar")
to throw a PathNotFoundException.
I believe if the more explicit namespace exception was the intended by the spec, getItem()
for example would explicitely throw
a NamespaceException (or similar).

not need to check if the namespace exists before checking for a nodetype. it should return
