I got the code from the wiki.  It had the mimetype and the encoding type.  I
modified the code and just put empty strings in for now.

So does it mean anything to say "Can I save the file itself?"

so the above code I put into a DAO method saveFile(File, Session).  In the
test for that method, i have

        Node root = session.getRootNode();
        // testFile is the file in the Dao
        Node fileNode = root.getNode(testFile.getName());
        Node fileDetails = fileNode.getNode("jcr:content");

        Property fileProp = fileDetails.getProperty("jcr:data");

I am trying to get at the file contents, which is just a string "some

on the property retrieved I dont see the file content (Im in eclipse's
debugger).  How do I retrieve the file.  What would a
loadFile(Session, filename) method look like?
