Subject [jira] Commented: (JCR-1508) Setting a new property value causes a read of the previous property value
Date Tue, 01 Apr 2008 08:24:24 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-1508?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12584050#action_12584050

Marcel Reutegger commented on JCR-1508:

While constraints may be checked later (i.e. on save), the specification clearly says in setProperty(String
name, Value value):

"If the property is multi-valued, a ValueFormatException is thrown."

This exception must be thrown immediately, it cannot be deferred to a later point in time
when changes are passed to the SPI implementation.

>             Project: Jackrabbit
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: jackrabbit-jcr2spi
>    Affects Versions: 1.4
>            Reporter: David Rauschenbach
> When using JCR2SPI with a custom SPI, getProperty is called when one attempts to set
a new property value with disregard to the previous value. The current JCR2SPI implementation
causes a getPropertyInfo, which requests the old value from the back-end. This is fundamentally
unsound, and kills performance.
> An SPI has no choice but to guard against this by returning a PropertyInfo proxy that
performs lazy-loading of the value. The problem is that if an error occurs when dereferencing
the value, and when performing the lazy-load, JCR2SPI is ill-suited to hande an unchecked
exception at such a time. Besides, it is a "hack upon a hack", because JCR2SPI could do this
work itself, by making proper use of the SPI functions for requesting property type information.
