Subject [OT] JCR on a file system
Date Thu, 22 Nov 2012 18:15:03 GMT
Hi everyone,

I came across [0] and its interesting "Don't fear the filesystem!" section. That brought me
to the "stupid" question:

Why does Jackrabbit/Oak not map JCR hierarchies directly to the filesystem?

Things that come to my mind, but I am not sure if you couldn't overcome them with some creativity:
- transactions
- names: JCR allowing almost unrestricted node names, file systems probably not
- batch-write performance (though in-memory buffering in OS should have the same effect)
