move method of the MemoryFileSystem may accept invalid destination path resulting in invalid
entries in FS
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: JCR-1450
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-1450
             Project: Jackrabbit
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: jackrabbit-core
            Reporter: Denis Linine
            Priority: Trivial


It seems there can be a problem with the move method of the MemoryFileSystem class: when looking
at its code it looks that it can accept destinations, specifying folders that do not exist
in the file system.
For example, if there is a "somefolder/somefile" file and I call the method passing, say "somefolder/someotherfolder/somefile"
as the destination. The destination will be accepted by the code even if "somefolder/someotherfolder"
is not an existing folder and the function execution will result in a file having the "somefolder/someotherfolder/somefile"
path within a file system having no "somefolder/someotherfolder" folder - the code should
probably check whether the destination path is really a valid one. Such  validation could
be performed , for example, in the following way: take all path elements from the destination
path except the last one and insure that the resulting path points to an existing folder,
throw an exception otherwise.
Currently I have no JackRabbit build/test environment set up and could not verify practically
whether the issue described can really take place, the supposition is made after looking at
the move method implementation.
