You can also look at Edgar's purely JDBC implementation here :

Granted it is a bit young, and because Jackrabbit is still under 
development, the "optional" PMs have been lagging behind. The idea was 
to get the Jackrabbit implementation to version 1.0 as soon as possible, 
and the contrib would lag a bit behind because they are not regularly 
maintained with the rest of the project. Maybe adding some documentation 
to explain this would be a good idea.

I think that in the early days we should mostly use JSR-170 as a 
high-level API than JDBC, that offers us powerful searching, 
hierarchical types definitions, referencing, etc, than as a general 
mapping tool.
