It really depends on what you mean by putting "it all" into the database. You can certainly
put all the persistent data into the database, but a certain amount of transient data will
be created on the local filesystem (indexes, journaling) and of course the configuration needs
to exist locally.

We use a centralized DB for storage in a clustered environment, and we can add nodes to the
cluster without manually copying anything other than a single XML configuration file. Jackrabbit
creates the transient data automatically upon startup.

Hopefully I'm not doing something ill-advised. It sure seems to work well for us ;)
