I'd like to add an additional method for adding event listeners to the Jackrabbit API:
void addEventListener(EventListener listener, int eventTypes, String absPaths, boolean isDeep, String uuid, String nodeTypeName, boolean noLocal, boolean noExternal) throws RepositoryException;
Compared to the JCR method of the same name, this method takes an array of absPath and additional boolean argument:
Only events whose associated parent node is at one of the paths in <code>absPaths</code> (or within its subgraph, if <code>isDeep</code> is <code>true</code>) will be received.
Additionally, if <code>noExternal</code> is <code>true</code>, then events from external cluster nodes are ignored. Otherwise, they are not ignored.
