Subject Re: Pattern matching in queries
Date Thu, 05 Jul 2007 16:22:18 GMT
Thanks for the info, Marcel.

I managed to find a way to limit my search to my satisfaction by using XPath
syntax.  The 'type' nodes from my example have a 'name' attribute which I do
have easily available, so I tried these two queries (both worked):

//element(*, my:typeNode)[jcr:contains(., 'type
name')]/element(*,my:dataNode)[jcr:contains(., 'data node search phrase')]
//element(*, my:typeNode)[@type:name = 'type
name']/element(*,my:dataNode)[jcr:contains(., 'data node search phrase')]

This works pretty well for my purposes.
