I'd like to access the javax.jcr.version.VersionHistory of a node that has been deleted to read metadata and change labels, or possibly restore it. How can I do that? The JCR VersionManager provides methods
getBaseVersion(java.lang.String absPath) and
getVersionHistory(java.lang.String absPath) that throw a
PathNotFoundException when the node at absPath has been deleted, although the data is still around in the /jcr:system/jcr:versionStorage .
I'm using jackrabbit-oak 1.6.1, in case that's relevant. Thank you very much!
