hi oliver,

> (1) Where can I get the (tentative) JCR API?
you can download the snapshot that was out for public review
in may-2004 
( )
which is a quite a bit outdated now. or you can get the binaries that
are used by maven to build for jackrabbit from
"proposed final draft" will be submitted soon (i hope).

i think you bring up a good point, we should somehow 
manage to get the java-doc of the jsr-170 into the 
jackrabbit api doc.

> (2) When *presumably* will Jackrabbit be mature enought 
> to be an alternative to the current Slide backend?
since i do not know slide well enough to understand how 
mature it is and i cannot judge what it would mean to be an alternative
to the slide backend, i can only speak for jackrabbit. even when 
jackrabbit was still a slide proposal people (unfortuntately) 
started to use it in production. 
there are already mature applications that are built 
uniquely on jackrabbit, so far people have been very 
happy with the stability.

i am sure there are very different mechanisms to measure
robustness, which are usually very dependant on the 
requirements of the users. do you have any sort of 
performance metrics in mind? uptime? size of the 
repository in bytes or nodes (resources)? transactions
per second? functionality (versioning, query, 
transactions,...?)? memory consumption?

if there are any standard loadtests that are used 
for slide i am sure we could port them over to 
jsr-170 and see how jackrabbit compares today...
(which as a side effect would allow us to have 
the worlds first "general purpose content 
repository benchmark" that would run against 
any jsr-170 compliant repository ;) )
