    I am working  in Prism (formerly OWSKiller - Oracle PLSQL Producer in
Cocoon 1.7) and I have plan to adapt this producer as Generator in version
    The next, week i'll put the 1.0-alpha release tested as producer in my
home page. This producer support Oracle DB 7.x, 8.x and Lite version (and
in the future DB2).
    This new version extend the model of generating of XML inside de DB
through  Stored Procedures with Stored Procedures wrinting in Java+SQLJ.

        I have plan to contribute with my code to ASF, what do you think
about this?.
