Jukka Zitting commented on JCR-296:
-----------------------------------

Thanks for raising the issue! You are absolutely correct, the available documentation is not
very beginner-friendly. I'll take a look at the issues you raised.

About having a help forum on the web site: We are currently using on the jackrabbit-dev mailing
list as the forum for asking questions as well as discussing Jackrabbit issues. Would there
be interest in for example setting up a part of the Jackrabbit wiki as an easier-to-approach
Q/A forum for new users?

> Hi everyone,
> I'm one of these beginners trying to make their way in Jackrabbit and content repositories
universe.
> Besides the fact that there exist but very few examples on Jackrabbit use, all of them,
including the official web site of Jackrabbit miss few details, simple though essential, for
beginners.
> My first point is the following: once Jackrabbit source is checked out and built, time
to test it using simple examples. But, where to put the example directory from the beginning.
How to run it (maven java:compile....) ?
> A second point is the fact that there is no help forum on the Jackrabbit web site.
>  A third point, taking my case as an example, the example would just not create a new
workspace configuration.
> And many other troubleshoots - I repeat - basic but essential, that could avoid dozens
of wasted hours and discouragment, if just mentioned on the website.
> Here it is my wish :-) for the best of Jackrabbit ;-) I hope!
> Regards,
> Celina
