afaik, there is a php port of jsr170. but i don't know how this
connects to a jackrabbit repository. probably via rmi.

that would not be very efficient and i wonder why you would want that.
especially, how you would trigger the export?

> 2) As Jackrabbit is primarily used for building CMSs,
that is not the case at all. first, jackrabbit is the reference
implemenation of JCR (jsr170), the Java Content Repository API. second
the jcr was not designed to suit any special usecase. just as content
repository api. but of course, one very common type of application
that levereges jcr are CMS.

sure. content repositories are theoretically a superset of rdbms and
therefore can be used for everything rdbms can.
