Subject RE: Query mixin and nt:resource nodes
Date Thu, 01 Oct 2009 13:08:23 GMT
I haven't touched any of the indexing configuration settings and from what I
have seen the default is to index the basic file types I am storing in the

What I am trying to do is have my query search on both the binary file data
and my custom mixin which is added to the nt:resource node.

Should I be adding the mixin to the parent nt:file node? If so, then what
node type do I search on in my query?

I have a custom mixin defined called "hfs:fileInfo". Is has several
properties (description, entered, modified).

What would the query look like to search on both the binary file data and my
custom mixin properties?

Best Regards,

"Why doesn't //*[jcr:contains(@jcr:data, 'foo')] return matches for binary

it means that the XPath context node is searched using the
jcr:contains() function. In jackrabbit jcr:contains will search all
properties on that node unless otherwise configured in the indexing

see: http://wiki.apache.org/jackrabbit/IndexingConfiguration

> Any other suggestions?

you could separate the resource from the file. e.g. have the description
property on a node that is distinct from the node where you have the
jcr:data on.

using built in node types that would be:

//element(*, nt:file)[jcr:contains(jcr:content, 'example')]

or if you also want to search on description:

//element(*, nt:file)[jcr:contains(@description, 'example' or
jcr:contains(jcr:content, 'example')]

(assuming you have a custom node type that extends from nt:file and allows
you to set @description)
