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.
