Subject Observation: update memory data after Event.NODE_REMOVED
Date Wed, 21 Nov 2007 17:42:59 GMT

In my application I have a util.List instance that keeps all data show
on screen.
Now I am using Observation to keep my data in memory in sync with
modifications on the repository. So I register a listener and wait for
Event.NODE_REMOVED event. All works.

When I receive the event, the event instance contains the path of
removed node. Now, If I want to update my List in memory removing the
application object that wrap that Node. I can only lookup the object
in memory via event.getPath().

Now, what it seems to be needed here is a sort of mapping that has
node path as the key and, as value, the index of application object in
my List.
Or, I can duplicate the path information of the node in my application
object, so I can search for it in my List in memory. I cannot relay on
the wrapped Node.getPath cause when I receive the NODE_REMOVED event,
that node is gone and if I call getPath on it, I receive an exception

9a8d806f-a3e9-48aa-84ab-a05a8c5436ca: the item does not exist anymore

So, What I am trying to create is a binding between JCR and the data
that I have actually in memory, the same way I use GlazedLists to bind
data lists in memory and the swing models for the GUI.

I would like some advice, if I am missing something or if this is a
wrong way...
