Abstract base type for nodes in a structured node hierarchy.

Definition

[nt:hierarchyNode]
- jcr:created (DATE) autocreated protected INITIALIZE

Description

Together with nt:folder and other subtypes this node type implements the Composite design pattern for storing structured node hierarchies. Node hierarchies based on nt:hierarchyNode subtypes differ from hierarchies based on nt:unstructured in that each nt:hierarchyNode node has a distinct character (e.g. branch or leaf node) and semantics whereas nt:unstructured nodes have no specified interpretation

This node type is normally only used as a base for other node types, as there is usually little point in creating a node whose only content is the creation date and other metadata specified by possible mixin types.
