Make sure that whenever you getCollection you authenticate as the admin.
You do that in the first case in your code, but not in the second one.
On the other hand, I *think* eXist hooks in a shutdown handler, so as long
as the JVM exits gracefully the database will be automatically shut down.
Wolfgang, can you confirm?
