I'm using JBoss Portelt 2.2 on Windows XP. I' donloaded the 60 MB package of JBoss AS (Version ???) including JBoss Portal 2.2
You should do your homework step by step. What about starting to write a simple portlet then write a simple application that uses JackRabbit and finally mix both ? They are not tightly coupled so you won't have any problem.
Are you sure you want to store that in CMS and not directly in a database ? (using Hibernate for example).
I thought, there is some library for persistent storage, because a CMS is already implemented. And using just JBoss libs would make it easier to use other JBoss functionalities, like clustering. I've already done some ?homework?, but wasn't sure about this. The JBoss Portal doc is quiet poor and there are only a pew pages about portlets and portals on the Internet. For me it is hard to get familiar with this technology.

The JBoss Portal docs are not a beginners guide to portlet development, nor are they a beginners guide to jackrabbit development.
Buy a book or read the specs.
