Subject AW: Sitemap editor cocoon app
Date Mon, 20 Aug 2001 06:49:27 GMT
Hi Sergio,

I just tried to use your sitemap editor, but with no success.
I am using Tomcat 3.2.3 on Windows 2000 with jdk 1.3 and followed
all your steps mentioned below, but I always get a resource not
found response.

What is the first resource to invoke?
