Subject Cocoon2 and HP Web Services Platform
Date Fri, 17 Aug 2001 06:38:38 GMT

I just wanted to let you know you can now take a look at HP Web
Services Platform (HPWS), which includes a modified version of
Cocoon2, as I presented in one the recent emails on cocoon-dev:

For those of you who have not read the thread of discussion on
cocoon-dev ("[C2] [2.1-dev] proposed changes to the Source
interface"), here is a quick introduction. 

HP, through the Web Services Organization (which I'm part of), is
making use of Cocoon2 as _the_ framework for accessing and building
Web Services.

As part of the HPWS product, we are actively supporting and enhancing
Cocoon2 to suit the needs of Web Services. We are using Cocoon2 to
implement business level protocols like ebXML, BizTalk, RosettaNet
RNIF, and others. While HPWS is a commercial solution, very much based
on Cocoon2, we do plan to incorporate back in the open source all the
changes we make to Cocoon2's source code.

In this release of HPWS, Cocoon2 contains some initial support for
accessing Web Services via SOAP. The specific enhancements contain a
SOAP and UDDI logicsheet, both developed on top of some powerful
abstractions, which I hope to integrate in the C2 main trunk very
soon. You can take a look at the changes we've done in the source
package that's included with the release. Unfortunately there isn't
much documentation on this framework yet, but you can follow the
thread of discussions in cocoon-dev mentioned above. Hopefully the
complete solution, updated to use the today's Cocoon2 2.1-dev source
code, will become available soon.

I'm really thrilled by the possibility we have to work with such a
great community of Cocoon2 developers and users. If you have any
specific questions or concerns please let us know and we'll try to
answer them.
