Subject [jr3] Node types
Date Thu, 18 Feb 2010 08:43:52 GMT
Currently node types are integral part of the repository. There is a
special storage mechanism (the file custom_nodetypes.xml), which is
non-transactional and problematic for clustering.

To simplify the architecture ('microkernel'), could the node type
functionality be implemented outside the kernel, as some kind of
observation listeners? The node type configuration could be stored as
regular nodes in s special tree. When registering or modifying a node
type, existing nodes may have to be updated of course. The node type
information itself could be stored in the nodes itself as a hidden
property.
