thanks for the suggestions. i've been going through the pain 
of setting up a repository and registering nodetypes and 
importing data. i would love an alternative that didn't have 
so many moving parts, even if it means a little more work to 
set up and tear down individual test fixtures. so i'll give 
easymock a try, and then fall back to the in mem pm if 

incidentally, it seems astonishing that we don't have 
simple, scriptable tools for namespace and nodetype 
registration and data import and export. i know edgar is 
working on the jcr-command one, and i'm super anxious to see 
it, cos i'm starting to get hard for a backup/restore 
solution for my webdav server. obviously i can write code to 
import and export xml docviews, and i am, but i'd prefer a 
general purpose tool provided by jackrabbit that's 
maintained by somebody with more intelligence and motivation 
that me :) ideally it would all be as simple as "mysql db < 
create-schema.sql" and "mysqldump db > export.sql" and 
"mysqldump db < import.sql". it's hard for users to screw 
those up :)
