Subject [jira] Commented: (JCR-1972) Preserving UUID and document version history on repository migration
Date Thu, 09 Jul 2009 06:44:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-1972?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12729069#action_12729069

Paco Avila commented on JCR-1972:

As I wrote some time ago, these modifications make two enhacements in the jackrabbit-core

- Enable UUID parameter in addNode: this allow to preserve the unique node identifier across
a repository migration. If you use references this change is fundamental.

- Enable Calendar parameter in checkin: this change can be used to preserve checking date
in document version history in a possible migration.

This migration can be of two types: 

- Change the repository backend: you use the default Derby database, but you want to swith
to MySQL, for example. Actually this is not possible in a easy way.

- Change the repository node definitions: jackrabbit actually can't deal with these changes
depending on their complexity. You have to write a program to make this migration.

>From my point of view, this patch introduces very neccessary funtionality into Jackrabbit.
If you want to include these modifications in a near release, I can try to send a new patch
that works with an specific jackrabbit-core version.

> I have been working I an migration utility for OpenKM and I performed some changes in
jackrabit-core to enable version import, preserving
> the modification date. Also modified org.apache.jackrabbit.core.NodeImpl to preserve
UUID in the migration process.
> This migration process is needed because there are changes in repository node definition,
and Jackrabbit can't deal with this actually.
> I've attache a PDF with the changes needed in Jackrabbit-core. It works and there was
no problems with the migrated repository.
