OK.  But if you want to check if a nodetype is already registered, ( and 
reregister or do not register depending on your requirement) , you still 
need to iterate and register nodes one by one.So, what s the advantage 
of     manager.registerNodeTypes(xml, 
JackrabbitNodeTypeManager.TEXT_XML);   as opposed to 
I understand that manager.registerNodeTypes(xml, 
JackrabbitNodeTypeManager.TEXT_XML);   can register in one shot , but 
may be it is a good idea to use it at the end of development , when you 
know you will not be registering or reregistering the nodes again and again.
