Subject Re: FW: [jcr2spi] RepositoryException lost in ItemManager#nodeExists
Date Wed, 24 Jul 2013 13:01:10 GMT
Looking at the code [1]

     * @see ItemManager#nodeExists(Path)
    public boolean nodeExists(Path path) {
        try {
            // session-sanity & permissions are checked upon
            NodeState nodeState = hierMgr.getNodeState(path);
            return itemExists(nodeState);
        } catch (PathNotFoundException pnfe) {
            return false;
        } catch (ItemNotFoundException infe) {
            return false;
        } catch (RepositoryException re) {
            return false;

The catch block for RepositoryException should probably wrap the
exception as a RuntimeException as it might happen for unknown reason.
Changing this might break backward compatibility. Would it be fine to
do that?

@abhinav - Can you open a bug for this?

> Hi,
>                 I am trying to implement a synchronization service using the jcr connector
for Documentum. The issue I am facing is if the Documentum server becomes non-responsive while
trying to check if a node has been updated or deleted at Documentum, the RepositoryException
is lost in ItemManagerImpl#nodeExists and the synchronization service is communicated that
the node does not exists which may not be the case. Could the RepositoryException be communicated
