Apache Cocoon 2.0

  Posted on Thursday December 13, @05:30AM Pacific
Infrastructure It has been a while since I first took a look at Apache's Cocoon project and boy has it evolved. Cocoon 2.0 is an XML publishing framework that raises the usage of XML and XSLT technologies for server applications to a new level. Designed for performance and scalability around pipelined SAX processing, Cocoon offers a flexible environment based on the separation of concerns between content, logic and style. A centralized configuration system and sophisticated caching top this all off and help you to create, deploy and maintain rock-solid XML server applications. Cocoon interacts with most data sources, including: filesystems, RDBMS, LDAP, native XML databases, and network-based data sources. It adapts content delivery to the capabilities of different devices like HTML, WML, PDF, SVG, RTF just to name a few. Cocoon currently runs as a Servlet or from a powerful commandline interface. The chosen design of an abstracted environment gives you the freedom to implement your own concrete environment to suit your required functionality.

    Does it works with interactive applications?
    I mean: can I write an application that produces XML output and use Cocoon2 to adapt it to the appropriate device (iPAQ, WAP 1.2.1, XHTML. etc)?

      Yes, Cocoon is well suited for the above application.

    Cocoon 2 is great: we use it also in Vodafone for new enhanced mobiles: see http://vsky.vodafone.com for more details.

      I was not able to enter your site, do you have a login? I am very interested in your application as we have developed a content management system based on cocoon.
      thanks

        Sorry the correct URL for the emulator is vsky.vodafone.com/vsky.

        A login is required only to access to the CVS system but this is only for Vodafone developers

    I am part-time working on a cocoon-based project. And I have a sample without any deployment document. Does anyone by chance to know how to deploy a application based on cocoon? Appreciated.
