     What is it?
     -----------
   
  -  Apache Cocoon 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.
  +  Apache Cocoon is a web development framework built around the concept
  +  of separation of concerns (that is: allowing people to do their job
  +  without having to step on each other toes) and component-oriented web 
  +  RAD.
  +
  +  Cocoon implements these concepts around the notion of 'component
  +  pipelines' modelled after the 'process chain' concept where each 
  +  worker specializes on a particular operation. This makes it possible
  +  to use a Lego(tm)-like approach in building web solutions where
  +  these components can be hooked together into pipelines without
  +  requiring further programming.
  +
  +  We like to think at Cocoon as "web glue" for your web application
  +  development needs. But most important, a glue that can keep 
  +  concerns separate and allow parallel evolution of the two sides, 
  +  improving development pace and reducing the chance of conflicts.

  -    Today, most web engineers consider XML as the key for an improved
  -    web model and web site managers see XML as a way to reduce costs
  -    and ease production. In an era where services rather than software
  -    will be key for economic success, a better and less expensive model
  -    for web publishing will be a winner, especially one based on open
  -    standards.
