Subject [jira] [Commented] (JCR-3093) Inconsistency between Session.getProperty and Node.getProperty for binary values
Date Wed, 12 Oct 2011 15:23:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-3093?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13125921#comment-13125921

angela commented on JCR-3093:

played around with the possibilities listed above. retrieving the json-ser of the parent node
potentially be cumbersome if a given session is allowed to retrieve the property but not the
parent node.

finally came up with a different solution:
the jcr-property resources expose a protected dav property that corresponds to the string
such as retrieved by Property.getString(). it is available for single-valued non-binary properties

consequently, getPropertyInfo only results in an additional GET request for non-binary multivalued
for any other properties (single-value or binary) a single PROPFIND request is sufficient
to retrieve the
information used to build the PropertyInfo object.

running the jackrabbit-jcr2dav ConformanceTest with tracing the average amount of time spent
with the
getPropertyInfo calls (NOTE that the test do not contain huge binary properties):

- original code:     3248
- patch 2 request: 7529
- final patch:         4640

futher improvement could be achieved by addressing JCR-2073 that would avoid redundant calls
to getPropertyInfo.

> there an inconsistency in the binary handling between the batch-reading facility and
those cases where a property is directly
> accessed without having accessed the parent node before.
> this issue came up with timothee maret running into performance issues when retrieving
the length of a binary property:
> if the property-entry has been created in the run of a batch-read operation the corresponding
property-data object
> contains internal values that contain the length of the binary (such as transported with
the json response) and only
> read the data from the server if the value stream is explicitly requested.
> however, if the property is accessed directly (e.g. Session.getProperty or Node.getProperty
with a relative path) 
> a GET request is made to the corresponding dav resource and the stream is read immediately.
> possible solution:
> if RepositoryService#getItemInfos(SessionInfo, ItemId) is called with a PropertyId the
> should not result in a GET request to the corresponding resource by calling super.getPropertyInfo(sessionInfo,
(PropertyId) itemId).
> instead it should be consistent with the batch-read and only make a PROPFIND request
for the property
> length. the returned PropertyInfo object would in that case be identical to the one generated
by the batch-read functionality.
