Hi michi

> Could the vfs contrib be used as alternative?
No, there's no benefit on using the vfs local file system over 
jackrabbit LocalFileSystem, it would be just an innecessary layer. Both 
implementations do more or less the same.

vfs provides a framework for writing custom file systems, I think it 
might help in a few cases. e.g. I use a memory filesystem for testing. 
But it's far from being an option for production.

IMHO, for now, the best os option is LocalFileSystem despite the 
performance problems in windows boxes.

 > or is somebody else working on an alternative?
According to stefan the best option would be a b-tree database like 
berkeley db. It seems the Michael Aemisegger is interested in writing a 
BTreePersistenceManager for berkeley db. And I'm doing some research for 
writing one for xindice.
