Class NodeTypeDefDiff

  • public class NodeTypeDefDiff
    extends Object
    A NodeTypeDefDiff represents the result of the comparison of two node type definitions.

    The result of the comparison can be categorized as one of the following types:

    NONE indicates that there is no modification at all.

    A TRIVIAL modification has no impact on the consistency of existing content. The following modifications are considered TRIVIAL:

    • changing node type orderableChildNodes flag
    • changing node type primaryItemName value
    • adding non-mandatory property/child node
    • changing property/child node protected flag
    • changing property/child node onParentVersion value
    • changing property/child node mandatory flag to false
    • changing property/child node autoCreated flag
    • changing specific property/child node name to *
    • changing child node defaultPrimaryType
    • changing child node sameNameSiblings flag to true
    • weaken child node requiredPrimaryTypes (e.g. by removing)
    • weaken property valueConstraints (e.g. by removing a constraint or by making a specific constraint less restrictive)
    • changing property defaultValues
    • changing specific property requiredType to undefined
    • changing property multiple flag to true

    A MAJOR modification potentially affects the consistency of existing content. All modifications that are not TRIVIAL are considered MAJOR.
