Subject Component setup
Date Tue, 21 Aug 2001 10:26:19 GMT

while I understand this is more an Avalon-specific question,
I'm a bit confused about component setup in Cocoon. From 
Berin's documents I understand that there are some methods
that are called once in a component's life such as 
configure(), initialize(), compose() and so on.

I'm planning to use initialize() in XMLDBGenerator in 
order to obtain a database instance that will be reused
during the component lifetime: I actually did it and it
seems to work, yet by grepping the whole Cocoon code base 
I see that Initializable is implemented only in 
is that on purpose (i.e. is the use of Initializable discouraged
for some reason that I'm missing) or is it just a coincidence?
