Could You direct me to a place where i can find more documentation,
about the supported restrictions in Jackrabbit?
I think it has something to do with "rep:glob", but how do i use it?

How could i configure a repository to use
I tried this in my repository.xml, using "DefaultSecurityManager",
"DefaultAccessManager" and "DefaultLoginModule". But it seems the i am not
able to select the principalbased.ACLTemplate. i always get the
acl.ACLTemplate from "AccessControlProviderFactoryImpl.createProvider()"
and i had
a look in that method, so me idea was to configure my repository to use
an principalbased.ACLProvider (line 76-78 in

    <Workspaces rootPath="${rep.home}/workspaces" defaultWorkspace="default"/>
        workspace configuration template:
        used to create the initial workspace if there's no workspace yet
    <Workspace name="${wsp.name}">
            virtual file system of the workspace:
            class: FQN of class implementing the FileSystem interface
        <FileSystem class="org.apache.jackrabbit.core.fs.local.LocalFileSystem">
            <param name="path" value="${wsp.home}"/>
            persistence manager of the workspace:
            class: FQN of class implementing the PersistenceManager interface
        <PersistenceManager class="org.apache.jackrabbit.core.persistence.bundle.DerbyPersistenceManager">
          <param name="url" value="jdbc:derby:${wsp.home}/db;create=true"/>
          <param name="schemaObjectPrefix" value="${wsp.name}_"/>
            Search index and the file system it uses.
            class: FQN of class implementing the QueryHandler interface
        <SearchIndex class="org.apache.jackrabbit.core.query.lucene.SearchIndex">
            <param name="path" value="${wsp.home}/index"/>
            <param name="textFilterClasses" value="org.apache.jackrabbit.extractor.PlainTextExtractor,org.apache.jackrabbit.extractor.MsWordTextExtractor,org.apache.jackrabbit.extractor.MsExcelTextExtractor,org.apache.jackrabbit.extractor.MsPowerPointTextExtractor,org.apache.jackrabbit.extractor.PdfTextExtractor,org.apache.jackrabbit.extractor.OpenOfficeTextExtractor,org.apache.jackrabbit.extractor.RTFTextExtractor,org.apache.jackrabbit.extractor.HTMLTextExtractor,org.apache.jackrabbit.extractor.XMLTextExtractor"/>
            <param name="extractorPoolSize" value="2"/>
            <param name="supportHighlighting" value="true"/>
