Yes, you can. But it's a real pain. Exposure tests have to carried through to 
completion, and you won't know while the paper is in the developer, as you 
would with trays, if your first trial is way off.  The tank has to be rinsed 
clean and dried before you put the next piece of paper in it. And forget 
about toning in the Jobo - you can't judge the effect and even with 
scrupulous cleaning there is a very real risk of contamination of the 
developer for the next print to go in.

Those are the reasons I use the Jobo for film only.
