Subject [jira] [Commented] (OAK-117) MicroKernel API: add delete(String blobId) method
Date Tue, 29 May 2012 13:59:23 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OAK-117?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13284818#comment-13284818

Thomas Mueller commented on OAK-117:

Sounds good! But I wonder if it would prevent us to implement garbage collection efficiently.
I'm not sure. For Jackrabbit 2.x, a typical garbage collection cycle is: start marking, mark
used binaries, sweep. The data store implementation takes case about deleting entries. If
we just add a delete method (which is elegant I have to admit) how could the data store implementation
take care of marking used binaries? If it doesn't / shouldn't, we would have to implement
marking on top of the MicroKernel interface, which might not be efficient.

So an alternative to delete(String blobId) would be:

- markStart()
- mark(String blobId)
- sweep()
