    Description

      as discussed in SLING-10011 it would be desirable to allow for retrieval of a Item's parent without having to deal with the exceptions that are thrown by Item.getParent() in case the parent does not exist or is not accessible.

      I would like to suggest to introduce JackrabbitSession.getParentOrNull(Item item), which would return a Node or null. For backwards compatibility the new method should come with a default implementation that calls Item.getParent() and returns null in case of AccessDeniedException as it is thrown by oak-jcr if there is no accessible parent or ItemNotFoundException in case of the root node.
