if i get your requirement right: no.

modify the config.xml present in the WEB-INF folder:
- look for the 'Webdav' servlet configuration
- uncomment 'missing-auth-mapping' param
- add username/password pair for someone allowed to modify content.

the default with jackrabbit-core is that any userId/pw pair is
allowed to write.
note however: you will never be promted for userid/pw if you
have this option set.

hope that helps
