Subject [jira] Commented: (JCR-2859) Make open scoped locks recoverable
Date Wed, 05 Jan 2011 16:24:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-2859?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12977821#action_12977821

Jukka Zitting commented on JCR-2859:
------------------------------------

I would treat this as an administration operation that normal client sessions should not be
able to do. We could for example allow admin sessions (or sessions with some special privilege)
to unlock any locks in the repository.

> The lock tokens for open scoped locks are currently tied to the session which created
the lock. If the session dies (for whatever reason) there is no way to recover the lock and
unlock the node.
> There is a theoretical way of adding the lock token to another session, but in most cases
the lock token is not available.
> Fortunately, the spec allows to relax this behaviour and I think it would make sense
to allow all sessions from the same user to unlock the node - this is still in compliance
with the spec but would make unlocked locked nodes possible in a programmatic way.
