Subject RE: [C2]Access control using sitemap
Date Sat, 09 Sep 2000 01:57:19 GMT

Could you expand a little on exactly what you thing the differences are
between a web-publishing framework and a web-application framework (incl.
what responsibilities each has)? And, if Cocoon isn't a web-app framework,
are there any web-app frameworks it'll integrate with easily?

Per.
