Options:

Shared UUID

Advantages:

  • Referencing a node without specifying the language is possible (e.g., fallback to the default language if a translation doesn't exist)

Issues:

  • JCR allows only one node with a particular UUID
    • Either use a referenceable language-independent node
    • Or don't use JCR UUIDs for references, but custom String-value properties
  • With JCR UUIDs and a common referenceable parent node, structures like /en/welcome, /de/willkommen are not possible (would require separating the content hierarchy from the URI structure)

Non-Shared UUID

Advantages:

  • JCR UUIDs could be used
  • Arbitrary content hierarchies / URI structures
  • Automatic referencial integrity check with respect to language version (i.e., /foo_de can't be removed if /bar_de points to it)

Issues:

  • References can only point to a particular translation
  • A. Common parent node or artificial node
    • Influences content hierarchy (and maybe URL structure)
    • Obtain all translations of an artificial common node using Node.getReferences()

  • B. No common parent node: relations between translations have to be maintained (or is this optional?)
    • B.1. via multi-value reference property at each translation
    • B.2. via language-independent node
    • In either case, translations are not self-contained anymore

Examples:

Non-shared UUID, arbitrary structure

/de
  /willkommen
    /jcr:uuid = 1
    /jcr:language = "de"
    /lenya:translations = { 2 }
/en
  /welcome
    /jcr:uuid = 2
    /jcr:language = "en"
    /lenya:translations = { 1 }

Non-shared UUID, arbitrary structure, explicit translation references

/welcome_de
  /jcr:uuid = 1
  /jcr:language = "de"
  /lenya:translations = { 2 }
/welcome_en
  /jcr:uuid = 2
  /jcr:language = "en"
  /lenya:translations = { 1 }

Non-shared UUID, arbitrary structure, implicit translation references via URL structure (String operations)

/welcome_de
  /jcr:uuid = 1
  /jcr:language = "de"
/welcome_en
  /jcr:uuid = 2
  /jcr:language = "en"

Non-shared UUID, common parent node

/welcome
  /de
    /jcr:uuid = 1
    /jcr:language = "de"
  /en
    /jcr:uuid = 2
    /jcr:language = "en"

Shared UUID, common parent node

/welcome
  /jcr:uuid = 1
  /de
    /jcr:language = "de"
  /en
    /jcr:language = "en"

Shared UUID, artificial shared node

/de
  /willkommen
    /lenya:sharedDocumentNode = 1
    /jcr:language = "de"
/en
  /welcome
    /lenya:sharedDocumentNode = 1
    /jcr:language = "en"
/lenya:sharedDocumentNodes
  /welcome
    /jcr:uuid = 1

Shared UUID, default language node is referenceable

  • Optional node type mix:referenceable assigned only to default-language nodes
  • Default-language node must exist

/de
  /willkommen
    /lenya:defaultLanguageNode = 1
    /jcr:language = "de"
/en
  /welcome
    /jcr:uuid = 1
    /jcr:language = "en"

Shared custom UUIDs

/welcome_de
  /lenya:uuid = 1
  /jcr:language = "de"
/welcome_en
  /lenya:uuid = 1
  /jcr:language = "en"
