Hi,
I´ve been trying to use your example but I get an XFormException:
org.apache.cocoon.acting.XFormAction$XFormActionException: XFormAction:
missing XFormInstance [orderForm]

How do you setup your example?

/Regards Mats

ps.
We´ve developed a similar formhandling application for C2 but based on
transformers instead...but I´m very curious about the XSP approach...
ds.

/Regards Mats
