Subject Re: [Ideas?] Integrating Cocoon2 and WebDAV
Date Wed, 31 Oct 2001 01:41:52 GMT
Hello all,

while looking for previous thoughts on combining Cocoon2 with WebDAV, I 
luckily stumbled about this post from some time ago. I want to combine 
Documentum, Cocoon2 and OpenOffice as a flexible 
CMS/collaboration/portal solution due to some promising results 
regarding OpenOffice and WebDAV. BTW, once you know you have to activate 
the OpenOffice load/save dialogs somewhere in the Options (thanks to 
Jörg Heilig from Sun), loading/saving over WebDAV really works 
beautifully there.

<sigh>While MS developed filesystem namespaces to allow stuff like 
virtual harddrives and the like for Win32, they ruined this wonderful 
idea later on, for example by providing and using standard File 
Open/Save dialogs that cannot use anything virtual properly...</sigh>

 I am looking for a way to perfectly (or better elegantly ?) integrate 
WebDAV into Cocoon2, being able to provide virtual documents for editing 
and retrieve the changes made to those virtual documents; as 
OpenOffice/StarOffice6.0 saves zip archives containing XML files, this 
practically screams for using Cocoon2 ;)
