Joseph, I confirm your results with cocoon 1.7. I several other elements of informations. They helped me solve the problem with Cocoon 1.7. Here they are. - Stefano Mazzocchi confimed to me that XSP has a problem in cocoon 1.7, which has now been fixed in CVS (supposedly packaged with the 1.7.1 to be). - Peter Moravek sent me his solution to the problem. I add some of my observations to his material below: With cocoon 1.7: 1/ use xalan_0_19_3D03.jar, 2/ make a directory where to hold the tag libraries, for instance /usr/local/cocoon/taglibs put the XSP part of your style sheets there. (see below for an example). 3/ add this directory to the JServ engine classpath 4/ use the resource:/ way to point to the XSP .xsl file. eg processor.xsp.library.example.java = resource://samplelib.xsl 5/ restart the jserv engine that serves cocoon (you need to restart after each modification you make to a library: serious restriction at development time in my opinion) 6/ touch sample.xml (the source) or clean the repository (there is a cache problem: the page is not recompiled when a library changes, even when you kill and restart the cocoon jserv engine! Now that's really not intuitive..). 7/ access sample.xml When you develop, you need to go through steps 5-7 each time you make a change to the library. Great fun! Well, at least this is a work-around. I wonder if these cache problems will be solved in cocoon 1.7.1.
