Uprooting a Version Tree!

What happens if the root version (1.0, one whose object id is same as its chronicle id) in a version tree is destroyed? It is an important object and may be referred to via the chronicle id of the other objects in the version tree.

In this situation, Content Server does not remove the object from the repository. Instead, it marks the object as deleted (i_is_deleted=TRUE) and removes its associated objects from the repository. The server also unlinks the object from all cabinet/folder locations and places it in the Temp cabinet. If the object is current (has version label CURRENT), it moves that label to the last modified version in the tree (highest r_modify_date).

More information on destroying objects can be found in the Content Server Fundamentals guide.
