Subject [jira] Commented: (JCR-741) Handling of multiple residual prop defs in EffectiveNodeTypeImpl
Date Mon, 05 Mar 2007 13:33:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-741?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12478035

Julian Reschke commented on JCR-741:

> my point is to possibly avoid a call (by an spi implementation) to the store and give
an spi implementation the opportunity to implement the method as an entirely local call. Would
this work in your case, or would you still have to ask the store to pick the right definition?

In my case it wouldn't make a difference; only the store knows the right answer.

> IMO we should remove the method RepositoryService.getPropertyDefinition() anyway. It
does not scale well and in almost all cases it can be infered from the node type definition
which property definition applies to a certain property. I think the same also applies to
child node definitions (jcr2spi only uses the method to get the node definition for the root

+1 on removing stuff from the API that isn't used by JCR2SPI.

> Using the node type definition and its item definitions require much lesser calls to
the SPI than using getPropertyDefinition() and getNodeDefinition(). So, I think jcr2spi does
it the right way, even though it doesn't use getPropertyDefinition().

Avoiding round-trips is good; we just need to make the special cases work. So what's the next
step? Add resolvePropertyDefinition() as proposed?

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-741
>             Project: Jackrabbit
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: SPI
>            Reporter: Julian Reschke
>         Assigned To: Julian Reschke
>            Priority: Minor
> org.apache.jackrabbit.jcr2spi.nodetype.EffectiveNodeTypeImpl currently rejects multiple
residual property definitions, if they do not differ in getMultiple(). In fact, it should
accept all combinations, so differing values for getOnParentVersionAction and other aspects
should be accepted as well.
> See JSR 170, 6.7.8:
> "For purposes of the above, the notion of two definitions having the same name does not
apply to two residual definitions. Two (or more) residual property or child node definitions
with differing subattributes must be permitted to co-exist in the same effective node type.
They are interpreted as disjunctive (ORed) options."
