Subject [jira] Created: (JCR-2906) Multivalued property sorted incorrectly
Date Tue, 01 Mar 2011 15:33:36 GMT
Multivalued property sorted incorrectly

                 Key: JCR-2906
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-2906
             Project: Jackrabbit Content Repository
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: jackrabbit-core
    Affects Versions: 2.2.0
         Environment: Windows 7, Sun JDK 1.6.0_23
            Reporter: Paul Lysak

Sorting on multivalued property may produce incorrect result because sorting is performed
only by last value of multivalued property.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create multivalued field in repository. Example from nodetypes file:
<propertyDefinition name="MyProperty" requiredType="String" autoCreated="false" mandatory="false"
   onParentVersion="COPY" protected="false" multiple="false">
2. Create few records so that all records except one would contain single value for MyProperty
and one record would contain 
first value which is greater then of any other record and the second value is somewhere in
the middle. Here is an example:
1st record: "aaaa"
2nd record: "cccc"
3rd record: "dddd", "bbbb"
3. Run some query which sorts Example of XPath query:
//*[...here are some criteria...] order by @MyProperty ascending
The query would return documents in such order:
"dddd", "bbbb"
which is not expected order (expected same order as they were entered - as "aaaa" < "cccc",
"cccc" < "dddd")

After some digging I found out that it happens because method 
(called from org.apache.jackrabbit.core.query.lucene.SharedFieldSortComparator.SimpleScoreDocComparator
returns only last Comparable of the document. Here is overwrites previous value:
retArray[termDocs.doc()] = getValue(value, type);

I tried to concatenate comparables (just to check if it would work for my case):
	if(retArray[termDocs.doc()] == null) {
		retArray[termDocs.doc()] = getValue(value, type);
	} else {
		retArray[termDocs.doc()] =
				retArray[termDocs.doc()] + " " + getValue(value, type);
But it didn't worked well either - TermEnum returns terms not in the same order as JackRabbit
returns values of multivalued field
(as an example ["qwer", "asdf"] may become ["asdf", "qwer"] ). So, simple concatenation doesn't
