  -  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.

  -  development needs. But most important, a glue that can keep
