Subject [jira] [Commented] (OAK-380) Define conversion of property values
Date Wed, 17 Oct 2012 12:22:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OAK-380?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13477811#comment-13477811
] 

Michael Dürig commented on OAK-380:
-----------------------------------

The conversions currently in place are the same we had earlier on {{CoreValue}} (i.e. before
OAK-350). I'm not sure what the original motivation was for the kind of conversions which
are built in but I think we should either

# Provide no conversion at all at that level but have a dedicated utility for handling conversions
or, 
# provide all conversion mandated by JCR. 

In the latter case I'd still delegate that conversion functionality to a utility method which
then could also be used otherwise.

> i just run into the situation of converting a propertystate's value
> of type Date to a Long, which currently throws numberformatexception.
> while i can work around this, i think we should come up with a clear
> definition on value conversion provided by oak-api. the only thing i

> unless otherwise specified i had silently expected that simple jcr-conversions
> would work.
