Subject Re: Using Jackrabbit with MySQL / Hibernate

Okay - I've just read the wiki about ORM and it's clearly not as 
straightforward as I was hoping. I've only just started looking at the 
Jackrabbit project, so I'm not up to speed with all the issues, but 
coming from an rdbms background, I would have thought most users would 
want to be able to plug Jackrabbit into an existing schema, at least for 
type 1 repositories. Also for type 2 repositories, as someone else 
mentioned in another msg, proprietary flat files might scare a lot of 
clients because they can't see where their data is from a traditional 

I rather like the idea of having the database set up in a similar way to 
how the JSR-170 pec suggests (with one table per property type) for type 
2 repositories. It's more "normal" for systems people and is also 
available to systems outside JSR-170 (non-Java - MS ADO for example).

Just my 2 pennies worth!
