a big issue is, that without knowing the java classes exactly, you are 
not able to implement the phpCR interfaces correctly. For connecting to 
the CR or creating a node, there are a lot of examples out there. But if 
you are going into detail, it gets much harder.

And if you don't know exactly what the interface or corresponding java 
class is doing, it is also difficult to write good unit tests. So the 
way I took was:

- It took a while to find some useful java unit tests which we can 
easily implement also in PHP and which test the needed java classes.

- Next step was to integrate PHPUnit3 into our UnitTesting Package and 
set up a first simple test.

I did not checked that work in the repository, because the whole testing 
stuff was made very quickly and is not so "official" (naming conventions 
and so on). Also the testing concept is still in work. I can take a look 
over it, and then maybe do a "checkin".

Whats your opinion, should i checkin the rough testing stuff?
