Issues using Database Explorer with eXist

I've recently started using oXygen 8 with eXist 1.0 and have encountered a couple of issues using the database explorer:

1) Resources within collections are not displayed alphabetically by filename in the tree. For instance, I have a (very) large collection of .xql files in one collection and the order they are shown in seems to be totally random, and so I have to visually scan down the entire list to find the file I'm looking for. Is there anyway I can improve the situation?

2) When adding an .xql file as a new resource, it is then treated as a binary file - i.e. my browser tries to download the file rather than process the XQuery. If I upload the exact same file using the eXist Java client it works perfectly. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

I take it these are known issues then?

Just to clarify with the 2nd problem - I can edit and save existing .xql files in the database no problem at all. It's just when I try to add one as a new resource.

1) You are right, it is better to display the resources sorted by name.
2) We detected the problem and a fix will be available soon.

Thanks for your reply stefan.

Just to clarify - will the fix also allow me to sort resources alphabetically then, or is it just attending to the 2nd problem?

The latest build available on the Download page (2006112715) fixes the second problem. Now when you save an XQuery file in an eXist container it is saved correctly as an XQuery resource. The problem of sorting the resources alphabetically will be fixed in a future version.

Thanks Sorin - I've tried it and it works perfectly now.

I'll look forward to the alphabetical sorting fix, as this will save me an awful lot of time.

Thanks again
