Improve ease of installation for deployment model 3: repository server

                 Key: JCR-1529
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-1529
             Project: Jackrabbit
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Christiaan

I think especially for people who are looking for the implementation of deployment model 3
(Model 3: The Repository Server) I would really like to see the following improvements for
faster acceptance of JackRabbit:
On the server side:
1) A bundled installation for Tomcat and Jackrabbit so after installing the Jackrabbit repository
is up and running (like the Slide project has);
2) For those who have already installed Tomcat a war file which also sets up the Jackrabbit
repository with minimal configuration. If I understand it correcly I currently have to download
about 15 individual jar files. Please bundle these as well!

For the client:
A small example how to acces the server repository from a (non-webapp) client. http://jackrabbit.apache.org/jcr-client-application-howto.html
does not really describe this, unlike mentioned in http://jackrabbit.apache.org/repository-server-howto.html
I personally think that this information is currently too much scattered over different pages,
howtos, wikis, hops.

Also, http://jackrabbit.apache.org/repository-server-howto.html contains the following warning:
Warning: The current JCR-RMI library is designed for simplicity, not performance. You will
probably experience major performance issues if you try running any non-trivial applications
on top of JCR-RMI.

This does not promote acceptance either. How mature is this deployment model? Can it be used
in production? What about the metioned alternative of WebDav protocol? Is this supported,
how should it be configured? Slide uses the webdav protocol and has proven to be fine for

kind regards,
