Charles, pleased to meet you. Happy to see the Sakai project thinking 
about adopting the JCR API.

I wear three hats here, one is my apache hat, one is my JSR-170 expert 
group member hat (very similar hats at the end of the day) and one is my 
MIT hat.

At MIT I'm part of the Digital Library Research Group and I've been 
pushing JSR170 with the OKI people (David also gave them a talk last 
year, when we held one of the JSR170 face2face meetings here in 
Cambridge) and I also push it for DSpace 2, even if with moderate 
traction so far, I must say. Having Sakai chosing JackRabbit will give 
me a very strong push for JCR into DSpace2, which might also be a useful 
thing in the global scheme of educational technologies in general.

So, count on me for help as I'm really interested in having Sakai use 

As for your problem, have you checked your classpath for weird 
xml-api.jar files? what JVM/OS are you running?
