Subject nt:folder allowSameNameSiblings and node names
Date Thu, 27 Mar 2008 17:05:00 GMT
I read JCR-854, and see that nt:folder does not allow same name sibling (children), which i
guess makes sense from a directory point of view. Originally this was fine as i used the name
of the 'real' document as the name of the node, and avoided name collisions.

Then i continued to run into a myriad of problems because there are restrictions on node names,
that make it tedious (at least to me) to do. So i decide switching to a constant node name
'File', and storing the 'real' name as a property. But i soon found out nt:folder doesn't
allow same name siblings.

So the question is, how does one generally do this? Is there some provided JCREncoder/Decoder
class that will mangle any name into a node name exceptable name? Or can you override nt:folder
to allow same name siblings?
