You can use any database (MySQL, PostgreSQL, H2 Database Engine,
Oracle,...). Apache Derby just happens to be the default.

If you use your own custom schema, you would need to write your own
JCR implementation (your own 'Jackrabbit'). Or at least your own
Persistence Manager (see
http://wiki.apache.org/jackrabbit/PersistenceManagerFAQ ). But that's
quite a lot of work. Instead, I suggest to use Jackrabbit to store the
node data, and use the regular MySQL Bundle Persistence Manager.

I suggest to use the Data Store, see http://wiki.apache.org/jackrabbit/DataStore
