         Can we keep the demo application as a blog and allow some posts to
be edited. So we can show versioning capabilities of JCR also. Like we have
both non-editable and editable (by the blog owner)  posts in the blog. One
point is if we allow editing on posts, comments made on the post must be
associated with the correct version of the post or it will make the comments
irrelevant. Same goes with the ratings. So I will be able to  do the demo
application in two phases and include the versioning part in the second
phase. Hopefully I will be quite familiar with Jackrabbit after the first
phase and will be able get over with versioning.Thank you very much for the
