Yes, we have the same targets.  what do you mean exactly by
"integration of portlet contents to the portal site hierarchy" ?

In my point of view, JCR is a nice API for the persistence layer (but
not on business logic/service layer and not on the interface layer ).
I like an application which makes abstraction on the technology to
I don't know how we can provide both solutions in the Graffito project
for the same target. This project is not always clear for some people.
So supporting both approach will add more complexities to understand
our goals.

Now, it should be nice to get feedback/comments from others.

Furthermore, J2 has its own object model. Adding cms features into J2,
is it not supporting the J2 object model in a content repo in order to
have features like versionning, locking, search, ... ? Let's continue
to discuss that on  your thread abouth the page manager impl.
