A "generic" mapping like tables = node types and rows = nodes would
imply you get flat hierarchies with millions of child nodes of one
"experiments" node. This is inefficient in Jackrabbit (we estimate the
max. recommended number of child nodes per node at 10K). And
completely misses the advantages of JCR modeling. You should rather
find a good hierarchy for your data. Almost always working is the date
of the item, creating subnodes like "2009/03/20/mydata1".
