Subject Re: Reason for Item.save() to be deprecated...
Date Thu, 16 Jul 2009 13:40:55 GMT

Hi Alexander,
  I've found the javadoc (I did not read well the code...).

The problem though is still there.

Let me explain.

We have developed a webapp for content management using jackrabbit as
Using the GUI (JSF) we can alter, modify, create or delete the entities
present in our repository (everithing, from user to document are mapped as a
node in the repository).

If we modify a different entity and want to save only one of them, we have
the problem to remove from the transient storage the modifications of the
other entity (which, of course, we don't put in a list of modified

In this case, Session.save() persist all the modified entities, which,
obviously is not what we want.
That's why we use the Item.save() method.

We hope that it won't be removed in the future or else we won't be able to
update the repository to the newer version of Jacrabbit.
