If you really needed that, you could always implement
repository.login("SHUTDOWN")... But just like you can't do that to an
Oracle database, I don't think it makes that much sense for

Much more specifically: needs to shutdown a repository to backup the
underlying storage. If you need to do that, you're in any case tied to
implementation-specific functionality as already the "backup
underlying storage" requires implementation-specific knowledge. So
IMHO there's not much benefit for the "shutdown the repository" part
to be independent of the underlying implementation.

In model 1 you're embedding the repository and thus you'd have a
direct dependency to jackrabbit-core and use RepositoryImpl.create()
to start the repository up. Using RepositoryImpl.shutdown() to shut it
down doesn't make things any more complicated.
