Subject [jira] [Commented] (OAK-214) PropertyImpl#getParent violates JCR API
Date Tue, 31 Jul 2012 14:05:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OAK-214?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13425782#comment-13425782

angela commented on OAK-214:

some other areas in propertydelegate that are odd or broken due to the assumption that
parent==null indicates a stale property:

1. toString() will result in NPE:

    public String toString() {
        // don't disturb the state: avoid calling resolve()
        return "PropertyDelegate[/" + parent.getPath() + '/' + propertyState.getName() + ']';

2. getStatus() relies on property status obtained from the parent tree being null
   as a measure to determine if the property is stale while at the same time 
   isStale() checks the parent for being null. to me that looks really
   troublesome to me having 2 different ways of identifying a stale property.
   apart from the mere fact that the parent might simply not be accessible without
   necessarily having a stale property.

    public boolean isStale() {
        return parent == null;

    public Status getStatus() throws InvalidItemStateException {
        Status propertyStatus = getParentTree().getPropertyStatus(getName());
        if (propertyStatus == null) {
            throw new InvalidItemStateException("Property is stale");

        return propertyStatus;

> Item#getParent mandates that an AccessDeniedException is thrown if the
> parent of an item is not accessible.
> however, the implementation in this case throws an InvalidItemStateException("Property
is stale") and PropertyDelegate#getParent marks the return value as @Nonnull.
> most probably that needs some additional fixed down the line and isn't as
> trivial to fix as oak-213
