Subject RE: Query for Nodes from a given Path

Thanks for the response.

The problem is that the pcf:Color node can appear at many levels within the tree so specifying
an absolute path won't work.

Any ideas how I can get around this?

Hello Paul,

you simply prepend the starting path to your path specification in the
createQuery statement, for example, if you want to query the pcf:Color
nodes below /the/starting/node, you say:

query = qm.createQuery("/the/starting/node/pcf:Color", Query.XPATH);

if this still doesn't work, you prepend /jcr:root at the beginning, like

query = qm.createQuery("/jcr:root/the/starting/node/pcf:Color",

Good luck!
