when there is such a package it should be possible.
there are quite some issues fixed since then (-> see jira)
but apart from that it should work.

you can easily create the connection by manually creating the
jcr2spi Repository instance. something like:

String url = <your server url>;
final RepositoryService service = createService(url) // see below;
Repository repository = RepositoryImpl.create(new 
AbstractRepositoryConfig() {
                     public RepositoryService getRepositoryService() {
                         return service;

private RepositoryService createService(String uri) throws 
RepositoryException {
         BatchReadConfig brc = new BatchReadConfig() {
             public int getDepth(Path path, PathResolver resolver) 
throws NamespaceException {
                 return 4;
         return new RepositoryServiceImpl(uri, brc);

that code is copied from the test setup in spi2davex.
hope that helps
