Hi, I am new to JackRabbit and in a process of evaluating it for my project.

We have a filesystem which contains huge data to be viewed by user based on folder/ file level authorization.
For instance a user can view folders based on the ACL stamped on the filesystem. This view shall be web based.

We do not have or intend to use any content repository since file system is the where the data shall be stored in folders and file format.

Can you please help me in understanding if jackrabbit can be configured to access the existing filesystem (No XML/ Database based persistence).

From the existing documentation, I could figure out how data can be saved as nodes and properties. But folders and files is what we are looking at.

Thanks for the help
