Subject Re: Priha vs. JackRabbit
Date Mon, 03 Nov 2008 08:32:40 GMT

The point about using an industry standard is that everyone can pick  
their own favourite implementation on the standard.

In other words, you can use Jackrabbit instead of Priha. Otherwise,  
it would make no sense to use JSR-170, now would it?

(Priha makes for a good default implementation simply because it's  
lightweight, has NO mandatory dependencies and is much better aligned  
with our current repo format than Jackrabbit.  It's much like the  
same situation as with, say HSQLDB vs MySQL.  Both have their own  
uses.  Have you noticed that we ship with HSQLDB right now instead of  
MySQL?  Funny, that ;-) )
