Command Line Examples

Here are examples with `curl` command (See http://jukkaz.wordpress.com/2009/11/24/jackrabbit-over-http/ for detail about the original examples.):

Creating a node - creates 'hello' node under the root node:

$ curl --request MKCOL --data @- --user admin:admin \
> http://localhost:8080/cms/server/default/jcr:root/hello/ <<END
> <sv:node sv:name="hello" xmlns:sv="http://www.jcp.org/jcr/sv/1.0">
> <sv:property sv:name="message" sv:type="String">
> <sv:value>Hello, World!</sv:value>
> </sv:property>
> <sv:property sv:name="date" sv:type="Date">
> <sv:value>2012-12-31T12:00:00.000Z</sv:value>
> </sv:property>
> </sv:node>
> END
          

Read the node:

$ curl --user admin:admin http://localhost:8080/cms/server/default/jcr:root/hello/
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<sv:node xmlns:sv="http://www.jcp.org/jcr/sv/1.0" sv:name="hello">
  <sv:property sv:name="jcr:primaryType" sv:type="Name">
    <sv:value>nt:unstructured</sv:value>
  </sv:property>
  <sv:property sv:name="date" sv:type="Date">
    <sv:value>2012-12-31T12:00:00.000Z</sv:value>
  </sv:property>
  <sv:property sv:name="message" sv:type="String">
    <sv:value>Hello, World!</sv:value>
  </sv:property>
</sv:node>
          

Update 'date' property of the 'hello' node:

$ curl --request PUT --header "Content-Type: jcr-value/date" \
> --data "2012-12-30T12:00:00.000Z" --user admin:admin \
> http://localhost:8080/server/default/jcr:root/hello/date
          

Update 'history' property of the 'hello' node:

$ curl --request PUT --header "Content-Type: jcr-value/string" \> --data "Document data updated" --user admin:admin \
> http://localhost:8080/cms/server/default/jcr:root/hello/history
          

Delete the node:

$ curl --request DELETE --user admin:admin \
> http://localhost:8080/cms/server/default/jcr:root/hello/
