Subject [jira] Commented: (IMAP-153) JCR Storage structure uses files as imap folders hiding the structure and exposing the underlying storage to users (potentially)
Date Tue, 08 Jun 2010 09:31:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IMAP-153?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12876611#action_12876611

Norman Maurer commented on IMAP-153:

Hi Ian,

I like the idea. I think we should even store the subscription metadata within the user folder.

Even if we copy the message to an other folder (not moving) we would just need to set a new
reference to it. For this to work we would need to store the metadata of the per folder. Which
means basicly the flags.

> Currently message and folder storage share the same single parent hierachy so that If
I have 2 imap folders INBOX and  INBOX/test the JCR node structure is
> .../INBOX/2010/05/31/message121231
> .../INBOX.test/2010/05/31/message345345
> Which results in the date structure being part of the folder and the imap folder not
being represented as a folder. It also means that messages really are moved, when they are
> The proposed layout is to move the folders into their own hierarchy and have the messages
in a sepeate hierachy, still one per user
> so a message in JCR looks like this (my uid is ieb)
> ...ieb/store/2010/06/08/message121243
