Description Petr Široký 2012-03-27 11:27:23 EDT
Description of problem:
When trying to import repository content from XML into Guvnor, the following exception is thrown.

javax.jcr.version.VersionException: Cannot add the child node named 'assets' under '/drools:repository/drools:package_area/defaultPackage' because it is checked in and the child's node definition '*' has an on-parent-version attribute of 'COPY' (must be 'ignore' to add child to checked-in parent)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download and start Guvnor bundled with BRMS 5.3 ER5.
2. Setup ModeShape as JCR repository.
3. Import the attached xml file into Guvnor.
Actual results:
The above exception is thrown.

Expected results:
The content is successfully imported.

Additional info:
ModeShape version used is 2.8.1.GA. Note that this was _not_ happening with 2.5.x.

Can you attach the XML file that was imported?
Comment 4 Horia Chiorean 2012-03-28 03:18:16 EDT
Also, please attach the server log which contains the exception.

Comment 7 Petr Široký 2012-03-28 04:39:39 EDT
Sorry, guys. I thought I attached both server.log and XML file when creating the issue, but somehow it wasn't there. It's fixed now.

Horia Chiorean <> made a comment on jira MODE-1450

Issue was caused by the fact that imported nodes were considered checked-in. 

The fix was to disable the check-in behaviour when importing content from XML.

The fix can be cherry-picked into the 2.x branch as well

Merged into the '2.8.x' branch and cherry-picked into the '2.x' branch.
Comment 10 Petr Široký 2012-03-30 09:07:11 EDT
Thanks for fixing it so quick! I will verify that when new build arrives.
