Subject Storing and retrieving PDF file
Date Tue, 12 May 2009 21:03:52 GMT
I have some doubts about retrieving a pdf file from Jackrabbit.

Currently I stored a PDF file in Jackrabbit like this:

File newFile = new File("d:\\BIRTRefCard.pdf");

Repository repository = null;

Session session = null;

try {

repository = new TransientRepository();

//jackrabbit's default JAAS LoginModule (SimpleLoginModule) is just a dummy

//implementation which only distinguishes between anonymous/non-anonymous

//login's. any non-anonymous login has full read/write permissions.

session = repository.login(new SimpleCredentials("johndoe","password".toCharArray()));

Node root = session.getRootNode();

Node fileNode = root.addNode(newFile.getName(), "nt:file");

//create the mandatory child node - jcr:content

Node resNode = fileNode.addNode("jcr:content", "nt:resource");

InputStream in = new FileInputStream(newFile);

resNode.setProperty("jcr:mimeType", "application/pdf");

resNode.setProperty("jcr:data", in);

Calendar lastModified = Calendar.getInstance();


resNode.setProperty("jcr:lastModified", lastModified);


} catch (LoginException e) {


} catch (RepositoryException e) {


} catch (IOException e) {


} finally {



But how can I get the pdf file back from the system?

I tried something like the code below but I am not sure if it is the correct way. I want to
stream this pdf to the client

Node root = session.getRootNode();

Node content = root.getNode("BIRTRefCard.pdf/jcr:content");

final InputStream in = content.getProperty("jcr:data").getStream();

final String mime = content.getProperty("jcr:mimeType").getString();


Pls help.

Thanks in advance
