Subject Re: i can't populate the repository with the standalone server
Date Wed, 20 Feb 2013 13:45:38 GMT
hi julián

i had a quick look: the populate.jsp is totally broken.
1) the code still relies on a dummy security setup that would
    allow any kind of credentials to write to the repo... that
    has changed ages ago.
2) i can confirm that changing the populate.jsp to use valid credentials
    doesn't work.

for the time being i would like to suggest that you use the default
webdav access to the repository in order to populate it with files
and folders: http://localhost:8080/repository/default/

i quickly tried it out on my jackrabbit trunk installation and managed
to populate the repository with some content.

if you want know about the actual items created by the webdav server,
you may want to try using the jcr-remoting... there is some basic info
present in the standalone webapp.
for example if you have a node at /test the json serialization of that
node and possible subnodes (2 levels deep) can be viewed at

sorry for the trouble!
