JSR-283: mix:created/mix:lastModified - auto-set but allow modification for imports

                 Key: JCR-2233
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-2233
             Project: Jackrabbit Content Repository
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: jackrabbit-core, JCR 2.0
            Reporter: Alexander Klimetschek
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 2.0.0

Following the discussion in JCR-2116, I propose it would be a good idea to have jcr:created,
jcr:createdBy (from mix:created) and jcr:lastModified, jcr:lastModifiedBy (mix:lastModified)
not protected, but still automatically set those properties in case they were not modified
by the client.

Three advantages:

a) This allows for importing content with these properties, where eg. the jcr:created should
point to the original creation date of the content, not when it was imported.

b) Same for jcr:lastModified, which often must be set manually for ensuring correct behaviour
when doing synchronizations etc.

c) In order to take advantage of the automatically-set behaviour mentioned in the spec, it
would be nice if the repository would set them in the case the client is not writing those
properties. This way you can ensure the properties are correctly set when you cannot control
all client-code modifying the content (eg. webdav).

Question: would this be in line with the spec? I would say, yes, since we say we don't implement
"protected", which is allowed, but add a hybrid approach (which is not explicitly forbidden,

For the reference, here is the definition from the latest JSR-283 doc:

[mix:lastModified] mixin 
  - jcr:lastModified (DATE) autocreated protected? OPV? 
  - jcr:lastModifiedBy (STRING) autocreated protected? OPV? 

[mix:created] mixin 
  - jcr:created (DATE) autocreated protected? OPV? 
  - jcr:createdBy (STRING) autocreated protected? OPV? 

And here is the current cnd definition in JR 2.0:
