Subject Re: what does NodeTypeRegistry.reregisterNodeType() do?
Date Thu, 31 Jul 2008 21:12:45 GMT
Hi -- I've attached a couple of pieces of code.  The servlet is the code 
that registers or re-registers the node types.  I run it
in the same webapp as jackrabbit, and have it load on startup after 
everything else.
The dumpsnippet.java is from a test program that just dumps the nodes.   I 
call it at the "/jcr.system/jcr.nodeTypes" level
  to see all the node types and their properties.   This is run via the spi 
webdav interface.

I can add node types to the CND file and restart tomcat and all is well, but 
adding non-mandatory properties to an
exisiting node type does not seem to do anything.

Thanks

Betty
