this is correct, the current implementation of JCRQL is not complete and 
queries without where clauses don't work correctly. however using a 
query to get all nodes in the workspace does not make much sense, does it?
There are also other areas which are not finished, e.g. 'order by'

another reason for the intermediate state of the query support in 
jackrabbit is the ongoing specification work in this area. in the next 
draft version of jsr170 jcrql will be replaced by standard SQL syntax 
and a datamodel mapping definition.
which means, jcrql will eventually disappear from the jackrabbit
