Thanks  for that Edgar, I hadn't really thought much about the choice of
persistence manager as in the future I want to move over to a relational
database storage. I was hoping to use Apache obj. Is anybody using this
yet ? I'm anxious to get some feedback on performance.

I think you shouldn't do any check, it's a bug in the XML PM.
One possible fix is to escape the sensitive character ('&'). Or maybe
create a DOM document and use XML serialization, I think this would be
more secure.

If you still want to recover your broken repository you can try the tool
I uploaded to JIRA (http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-76). It
will ask you to remove any reference to nodes and properties that the PM
is unable to read. I plan to add a GUI that will let the user navigate
the PM, but it's only a console tool for now :(.

btw, I don't think XML PM + CQFS is a good choice. xml is human readable
but it's no so easy to read/write if it's stored in cqfs. IMHO If you
need to use cqfs for performance reasons you should use Object PM
