Hi Sten,

I'd recommend to create a SOAP API based on the Jackrabbit SPI effort because it 
is much easier to implement. In contrast to the JCR API the Jackrabbit SPI is 
less object oriented (e.g. there are no methods to navigate between items, etc.) 
and better suited for protocols.


If you are interested in building a SOAP API based on the Jackrabbit SPI 
interfaces you may want to have a look at the SPI-RMI implementation. It simply 
remotes the SPI interfaces using RMI. Using SOAP instead should be straight forward.
