there are various areas in jackrabbit that use 1.4 features:
- parsing of QName and Path uses regular expressions
- repository impl uses NIO
- javax.security is used for authentication
- javax.xml.transform for xml processing
- some collection classes that are only available in 1.4

I don't think there is a workaround to get jackrabbit working with 1.3. 
some of the missing features might be available as separate jar files 
from sun, but getting the NIO feature into a 1.3 jdk seems hopeless.
