Subject [jira] Commented: (JCR-322) Support node type modification and removal
Date Thu, 08 Feb 2007 10:22:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-322?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12471262

Stefan Guggisberg commented on JCR-322:

anton, thanks for the patch and your efforts, very much appreciated!

my main concerns wrt your patch are:

1. concurrency: i don't agree with your analysis. not all perrsistence operations are invoked
through Item.save(). workspace operations e.g. don't call Item.save(). furthermore, sync'ing
Item.save() on the Repository instance is not an option since this would severely impact concurrency
through heavy nmonitor contention. what we'd really need to do is apply deep locks on root
nodes in every workspace or alternatively put repository in 'exclusive' or 'single-user' mode,
as mentioned in javadoc.

2. exposing RepositoryImpl.getSystemSession() is, for obvious reasons, not an option. 

3. you removed the call to getDependentNodeTypes(). note that inter-node type dependencies
are not limited to node type inheritance. see http://jackrabbit.apache.org/api-1/org/apache/jackrabbit/core/nodetype/NodeTypeDef.html#getDependencies()
for an explanation.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-322
>             Project: Jackrabbit
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: nodetype
>    Affects Versions: 0.9, 1.0
>            Reporter: Jukka Zitting
>         Attachments: nodetyperegistry.patch
> There is currently no way to modify or remove registered node types. The existing reregister
and unregister methods in NodeTypeRegistry  throw "not yet implemented" exceptions for anything
else than trivial node type changes.
> JSR 283 is working on an node type management API that we should ultimately implement.
