Is the intent to lock out the entire workspace while backup or restore is 
occurring......no writes?!  Can the transactions that occur during backup 
be recorded and played back to the backup system to avoid having to lock 
the entire workspace? 

Restore is a different issue though....which takes precedence: non-restore 
operations that occur during restore or the nodes from the backup?  Is it 
feasible to restore clusters (transitive closure containing references) of 
nodes?  Ideally we wouldn't have to lock the entire workspace.

Hi Tobias,

Thanks for your feedback.

I assume I would need to lock the workspace using the getLockManager of

Are those lock "time outted"? I mean for instance the backup application
crashes, I had a lock on a Workspace, I would need to clean it as soon as
possible. If they are not, maybe we should add it in JackRabbit through 
instance a lease.

What do you think?
