Creating sub-node within jcr:content - 3rd node from jcr:content is not created

Avatar

Level 4

Hi all,

 
We are using code to programitacally create node in CRX. Using AEM 6.1 . Found that if we want to create 3rd node from "jcr:content" then it does not create 3rd node (in this case 3rd node is "n3").
 
Refer to this adobe link
https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-manager/using/programmatically-accessing-cq-content-using.html
 
 
 
Repository repository = JcrUtils.getRepository("http://localhost:4502/crx/server");
   
   //Create a Session
   javax.jcr.Session session = repository.login( new SimpleCredentials("admin", "admin".toCharArray()));
 
  //Create a node that represents the root node
  Node root = session.getRootNode();
 
  // Create Node
Node n2 = root.getNode("content/mysite/mypage/jcr:content/n1/n2")
  Node n3 = root.addNode("n3");
 
NOTE : Node "n2" already exists. (content/mysite/mypage/jcr:content/n1/n2)
 
Any reason why the above code does not create node at 3rd level from "jcr:content" ? Is there any limitation of JCR ? 
 
Using same code if we use "addNode" for creating any node parallel to "n1" then we are able to create that node
 
   // Create Node
Node n1 = root.getNode("content/mysite/mypage/jcr:content/n1")
  Node n11 = root.addNode("n11");

Hi,

If you see the documentation you may find that "addNode()" function accepts the relative path. Its is not aware of any level structure.

Now lets say you call  root.addNode("x1"); in this case root path is mypage/jcr:content so mypage/jcr:content/x1 gets created.

From here if you want to creates node under mypage/jcr:content/x1 you need to change the reference from which you calling.

Node n = session.getNode("mypage/jcr:content/x1").

Node x2 = n.addNode("x2");

Now this will create a node similar to  mypage/jcr:content/x1/x2.

Keep in mind that its relative path to the node from which you are calling it.
