You probably found out already that that a jcr path is not the same as a 
XPath expression, so this is just for all the other lazy ones ;)

A jcr path will always point to only one single item (node or property). 
whereas a XPath expression may select a set of items. that's actually 
the main difference with the two paths. which makes it obvious that 
XPath cannot be translated into a jcr path.
