Subject [jira] Commented: (JCR-771) Make the CND files AUTOMATICALLY loaded from its natural place: /repository/nodetypes

---------------------------------------


> i think, the big problem when developing with JR is to manage the nodetypes.
> before we had the CND, you had to modify the custom nodetype.xml by
> hand. of course you can use the CND importer now, but it would be very
> handy, if the custom nodetypes would be written/read as CND as well.

clarification:

jackrabbit's internal persistent representation of the registered custom 
node type definitions (<rep home>/nodetypes/custom_nodetypes.xml) is 
an implementation detail and was never meant to be externally modified! 
if you do so you risk corrupting your repository. this has been repeatedly 
pointed out on the list.

btw: you wouldn't expect to be able to manually edit e.g. a tablespace file
of an oracle database...

since jackrabbit 1.0 you are able to register your node type definitions in
either xml or cnd format:
http://jackrabbit.apache.org/api-1/org/apache/jackrabbit/core/nodetype/NodeTypeManagerImpl.html#registerNodeTypes(java.io.InputStream,%20java.lang.String)

> Currently there is no AUTOMATIC support for the predefined custom node type files in
CND format. 
> They have to be loaded manually, same as the fact as for every getSession() the namespaces
are to be registered... 
> I think these 2 issues could best be solved together: 
> It would be a tremendous improvement if we could just put the cnd file inside /repository/nodetypes.
Such file starts by declaring the namepsaces anyway so it would also make the tedious NS registration
redundant.
> Both are currenlty boilerplate code and lot of newcomers (like myself :-) struggle with
it.
> For more info, please have a look at this thread on the JR maling list: "Namespaces -
questions" (posted by myself)
