actually you only need to implement the VersionControlledResource
interface for the vc-resource. all the rest (ItemResourceConstants,
TransactionResource and so on) is used for the remoting and has
nothing to do with deltaV.

since the resource implementations for the jcr-server are intended
to be used for the remoting of jsr170, they provide a lot of code
that is neither needed nor specially useful for deltaV-support.

some stuff like checkin/checkout, add-version-control will
basically be the same, but the aim of the implementation is
different and so is the focus.
it is comparable to a DavResource.addMember call: in the end both
implementations will do some sort of addNode or addProperty or
importXml due to the fact, that both implementations are built
on top of a jsr170 compliant repository and not because the are
the same.

saying this, i would suggest not to use common base classes or
share code but rather keep the two implementations separately,
at least in a first step.

kind regards
