Subject [jira] Commented: (JCR-1052) JCR valid names not allowed in Xpath xml sintax

Filippo Fratoni commented on JCR-1052:

Sorry for very late answer.
I don't consider this request as Bug but Improvement request.

Let me explain better the scenario.

When working with JCR implementation I need to work with paths for every
kind of functional implementation, and paths I can use with
hierarchy manager ar JCR Specification compliant.  So  when I'm going to
query  JCR  my expectation  is to deal  with  paths  I'm  using with
hierarchy manager.

Real case:
When I'm going to query along path of the form "Alevel/Blevel/3Level" this
paths breaks XML Specifications an XPath parser can't build the tree.

JCR Specifications says:
XPath query "must" be run against xml document representation of jcr
structure. They don't assert anything about the owner of the conversion from
jcr names to xml names.

I'm using JackRabbit to develope complex taxonomies and resource hierarchies
with strong and complex query need. Conversion between JCR end XML become  a
big Issue. In this cases an Xpath parser that transparently accept JCR path
can be a great plus. Xpath localNames may contains numeric starting
character to allow tree creation and than may apply ISO9075 conversion.

thanks for paying attention to my request

>             Project: Jackrabbit
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: xpath
>    Affects Versions: 1.3
>         Environment: WIndows 2003/xp server/client
> Tomcat 6.0.x
>            Reporter: Filippo Fratoni
>         Attachments: Xpath_basic_encoding.txt
> ref: JCR-579
> I'm working with Magnolia CMS that relies on Jackrabbit jcr Impl  1.3. 
> I can't query valid JCR path using Jackrabbit SearchManager in xpath mode due to different
spec. between JCR names and XML names.
> The ISO9075 approach in jackrabbit commons library is name based and not path based.
The result is the need to parse again full path in an Xpath compliant way to recursively encode
non XML names. 
> I think that the owner of this enhancement should be SearchManager class or one of its
collaborators(the parser for example) to ensure the consistence of JackRabbit jcr impl.
> For my project needs I'm going to token path string with "/" separator and then apply
ISO9075 encode. It will be ok for my actual project.
> Thanks in advance
