Can you back up a second and describe what you are actually trying to do? 
It kind of sounds like you're just trying to apply normal permissions to a
node, but if that's so, it seems you are making it very complicated.  As
Justin said you shouldn't need to implement classes or configure the
repository xml to set permissions.  You should use the JCR Api [1] and
jackrabbit provides all the implementations for you.  You log in, and then
call session.getAccessControlManager().  If you are trying to do something
more complicated, you'll have to be more specific.
