i seems, you did not get my point: i suggested to have the
very common utility classes present in the jackrabbit core
in some separated package, so everyone can make use
of it without introducing unnecessary dependencies to the

i had some of the utilities duplicated in the jcr-server
and i ended up removing most of them, because i was
tired of running after the changing api/jackrabbit.

so: what are the arguments against having a general
pool for common utilities in jackrabbit?

- valuehelper
- constants
- iteratorhelper
- etc...

those are things i would even expected to be part of
the api, since probably everyone building its
jsr170 impl will have those kind of helpers.

and sure: if someone provides utilities that are
better than those present in the jackrabbit core,
i'm not going to oppose :)
