Not much, there's
http://jackrabbit.apache.org/doc/components/classloader.html and the
Javadocs of o.a.j.classloader at

Basically the component contains a RepositoryClassLoader class that
allows you to load your Java classes from jar or class files placed
inside a content repository. This is useful for example for webapps
where you may want to deploy new components without having to modify
the war file or redeploy the entire webapp. You can just store the new
classes in an underlying content repository and use this component to
load the classes while the webapp is still running. An added benefit
is that you can then use all repository features like versioning to
manage the deployed classes.
