Subject RE: Using an sql query and ORDER BY
Date Wed, 07 May 2008 14:17:07 GMT
Yeah, I ended up realizing that and I'm currently using a path property
that we had on our custom node type to order the nodes.  I just figured
ordering the nodes by name or path would be a common occurrence and
that's what I was trying to do.

you can order nodes by any property. you don't have to configure it

because JCR also knows residual property definitions, you can even
create a 
statement that orders by a property that does not (currently) exist.
doing so 
will simply return the nodes in arbitrary order.

no, name and path cannot be used in an order by. only real properties
will work.
