Hi Al,

jackrabbit (or JCR in general) might be a good fit because you get a lot of 
features out of the box:

- hierarchical storage
- (fulltext) query
- observation of changes
- versioning

for a web framework that nicely works with JCR have a look at apache sling [1].

like some input on the best/easiest/quickest way to implement what I would describe (possibly
erroneously) as an "active database".  I'd like to be able to do the following:

and salary.

a message to all the other instances of my application that the salary has been updated. 
This might be a servlet based web app or multiple running instances of a java application.

I need Jackrabbit, EJB, Hivemind, Spring, none of the above?
