I don't think it is a credentials issue as the same repository.xml file deploys on Tomcat ok.

The NullPointerException here is caused by issue JCR-1678 [1] that's already fixed in Jackrabbit

However, the NPE hides some other problem. It looks like the webapp is unable to acquire a
repository session. This could either be caused by the repository not being available or by
some other issue in logging in to the repository. It could be something as simple as incorrect

The log method in question is expected to come from the GeneralServlet base class, but apparently
in oc4j the JspPage implementation class does not inherit from GeneralServlet. We probably
shouldn't make such expectations in Jackrabbit. Can you please file a bug report about this?

> Are there any other jars that I need to add to the class path for oc4j?

Adding the jcr-1.0.jar should be sufficient.
