Subject [jira] Commented: (IMAP-151) Replace MailboxMapper.existsMailboxStartingWith() with hasChildren()
Date Mon, 07 Jun 2010 16:31:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IMAP-151?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12876301#action_12876301

Ian Boston commented on IMAP-151:

Also there might be lots of other reasons there is a child node there.

There could be a 3rd party structure in the same space as the imap storage (this is unstructured
content so that is something that happens)

It would be safer to scan or query for jcr nodes that match a pattern (like have a mixin or
of a primary type), that really means they are imap folders.

> existsMailboxStartingWith() is only used to find out whether a mailbox has children.
For some implementations it's more efficient to use another mechanism (e.g. JCR nodes have
a hasNodes() method). Thus existsMailboxStartingWith() should be removed, hasChildren() should
be added and the implementations should make use of that.
