Subject Re: Web based JCR browser - Interests, OS, contribution

Definitely interested to see it at work. However, exactly as you say
it is quite interesting how the connection to the repo can be
obtained. I am thinking of a way to allow passing some configuration
through the web.xml or maybe some .properties file available in the
classpath, but I am not sure right now.
