Subject RE: Pulling the HTML out of CocoonServlet
Date Sat, 24 Jun 2000 01:32:56 GMT
Hi Giacomo,

	Can you explain the idea of contexts here in more detail?  Are the contexts
just the different targets to which the XML could be transformed?  (I am not
familiar with SOAP, sorry.)  What would the API for the abstract
context-neutral class look like?  If I understand you correctly,
CocoonServlet would delegate to an ErrorReporter, which contains the
hardcoded HTML (or whatever other formats we output to).  Is it important
for end users to be able to modify/customize the error messages that Cocoon
displays?  If so it might be better to use a server page and XSLT, as
opposed to a Java class.
	Let me know what you think.  And if you already have some concrete plans on
how to proceed, tell me what they are so I can get started!  :-)

Thank's for your offer to help.

I had the vision of something like an abstract, context neutral class
that handles the error cases. Implementing concrete classes base upon it
for the different contexts (mail, soap, html, ...) Cocoon might be
working in. Maybe pluggable ErrorReporters?
