I tend to agree with both of you guys ;-)

Contrary to many specs, the JCR spec is IMO quite readable and
describes the *mechanics* of JCR in a good way.

What's harder to find is how to map one's application-level problems
to JCR, what granularity to use, etc.

I'l shamelessly plug my own stuff here (links below), with two
articles that I have written to try and bridge that gap. It would be
cool to have more such articles/tutorials/case studies. I think that
can absolutely happen outside the Jackrabbit project, and it's even
often better if people who write such articles are not too close to
the core, so as to get an outsider's view of sorts.
