Subject Re: Question about versioning
Date Wed, 16 Aug 2006 16:36:29 GMT

Yes, I was reading the spec last night and it cleared up a lot of things.  To
answer my own questions:

- NodeC and NodeA have seperate version histories
- if NodeC is declared as onParentVersion=COPY, the its state will be
persisted as part of the "frozen" node of NodeA when it is versioned.
- checking out NodeA does not automatically check out NodeC.  you will need
to check it out seperately if you wanted to modify it.

I think this is correct.  Can someone confirm?  Also, I assume Jackrabbit
conforms to this spec pretty accurately?

Thanks.
