my question. I am using the jackrabbit webapp and I don't want to subclass, or modify existing
jackrabbit classes just to insert code that register my own event listener to observe repository
changes like addition, modifications, removal, etc. In the WEB-INF/config.xml I saw <iomanager>
and <propertymanager> registration but there's unfortunately not anything that looks
like event listeners registration.

No, there is no declarative way to do so, because it is part of the
JCR API (iomanager and co. are Jackrabbit-specific extensions that
have to be run at startup) and most importantly, it requires a
session, which in turn requires you to log in with a certain user.

How you do this depends on your application framework, because in most
cases you want that eventlistener to be started in a long-running
component (the session needs to stay open as long as you want to
receive events). Then you "only" have to call
