Subject [jira] [Commented] (OAK-3145) Allow plugging in additional jcr-descriptors
Date Wed, 29 Jul 2015 07:07:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OAK-3145?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14645590#comment-14645590

Chetan Mehrotra commented on OAK-3145:

Overall approach looks fine. Just a minor note - The new logic in Oak class can be moved to
{{AggregatingDescriptors}} like how its being done in {{CompositeHook.compose}}, {{CompositeEditor.compose}}.
Also we can rename {{AggregatingDescriptors}} to {{CompositeDescriptors}} so that it follows
current convention

> The current way oak compiles the JCR descriptors is somewhat hard-coded and does not
allow an easy way to extend it. Currently oak-jcr's {{RepositoryImpl.determineDescriptors()}}
uses oak-core's {{ContentRepositoryImpl.createDescriptors()}} ones and overwrites a few (in
{{JCRDescriptorsImpl}}). The result of this is then put into the {{RepositoryImpl.descriptors}}
field - which is subsequently used.
> While these descriptors can explicitly be overwritten via {{put}}, that all has to happen
within overwriting code of the {{RepositoryImpl}} hierarchy. There's no plug-in mechanism.
> Using the whiteboard pattern there should be a mechanism that allows to provide services
that implement {{Descriptors.class}} which could then be woven into the {{GeneralDescriptors}}
in use by {{ContentRepositorImpl}} for example. The plugin mechanism would thus allow hook
in Descriptors as 'the base' which are still overwritten by oak-core/oak-jcr's own defaults
(to ensure the final say is with oak-core/oak-jcr) - as opening up such a *Descriptors-plugin
mechanism could potentially be used by 3rd party code too*.
> PS: this is a spin-off of OAK-2844
