Subject [jira] [Commented] (CONNECTORS-1009) Cmis Repository Connector does not handle Document updating properly
Date Thu, 14 Aug 2014 22:19:18 GMT


Karl Wright commented on CONNECTORS-1009:

If it appears that the Alfresco CMIS implementation returns null for the version label, then
really there's nothing I can do to the CMIS connector to change its behavior, unless we can
identify another field that we can use as a surrogate for the version stamp in all cases where
the version label doesn't exist.  If the implementation returns "" (empty string), then perhaps
we can treat that case differently from null.

It does not appear to me, though, that the CMIS connector used with Alfresco will be able
to do what you request for document identifiers vs version identifiers.  Another connector
that operates similarly is the FileNet connector, FWIW.  So unless we change the behavior
of getDocumentVersions(), then this ticket will just be closed.

We *really* need a re-implemented Alfresco connector, but that project has been problematic
for a long time due to omissions and instability in Alfresco's native REST API.  There's a
ticket open we hoped to have done for 1.7, but clearly that's not possible now.

>             Project: ManifoldCF
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: CMIS connector
>            Reporter: Prasad Perera
>            Priority: Minor
> As a part of the Fix for CONNECTORS-1004, It seems CmisRepositoryConnector does not handle
document updating properly.
> Case Scenario:
> * Create a continuous crawling job using  CmisRepositoryConnector.
> * Update a document on repository end.
> * The document keep submitting to OutputConnector at each crawling interval though it
was not updated afterwards.
> One possible Fix needed I is : @ CmisRepositoryConnector:processDocument,
>  activities.ingestDocumentWithException(nodeId, version, documentURI, rd);
> The documentURI should point to the old document URI (Now it points to the latest documentURI
discovered and it may seems to confuse document references ?)
> Also, In ECM systems, for example in Alfresco, the documentIDs are formulated with the
version number as well.
> Ex: workspace://SpacesStore/8e12a887-3fa8-48d6-8516-5bcfad358ba2;1.0 --> version 1.0
> workspace://SpacesStore/8e12a887-3fa8-48d6-8516-5bcfad358ba2;1.1 --> version 1.1
> When we setup a query to crawl a repository folder, we discover content by referring
the child nodes. Because of that, now it seems to queue all the document versions and submit
them to OutputConnector thus producing duplicate documents at the output (search) side.
> Is there a way to avoid this problem ? It will be great if the repository can just take
the latest document version and submit it as an update.
