jackrabbit is not designed to expose the JCR api on top of a legacy system.
the PersistenceManager interface was never intended being an SPI that you
could use to integrate your existing data stored in proprietary
(e.g. a customers database).

it might be feasible though to write a custom persistence manager to represent
existing legacy data in a level-1 (read-only) repository. i don't
think the same is
possible for a level-2 repository and i certainly don't recommend it.

the proper way of solving your issue would be to store your object hierarchy
in a JCR server (such as jackrabbit).
