Subject Apache Cocoon 2.0 Description
Date Fri, 23 Nov 2001 10:08:08 GMT
Ok people,

almost everybody had something into this so here it goes:

                       Apache Cocoon 2.0

What is it? [short description]

XML processing framework

What is it? [long description]

Apache Cocoon is an XML publishing framework that raises the usage of
XML and XSLT technologies for server applications to a new
level. Designed for performance and scalability around pipelined SAX
processing, Cocoon offers a flexible environment based on the separation
of concerns between content, logic and style. A centralized
configuration system and sophisticated caching top this all off and help
you to create, deploy and maintain rock-solid XML server applications.

Cocoon interacts with most data sources, including: filesystems, RDBMS,
LDAP, native XML databases, and network-based data sources. It adapts
content delivery to the capabilities of different devices like HTML,
PDF, SVG, RTF just to name a few. Cocoon currently runs as a Servlet or
from a powerful commandline interface. The chosen design of an
environment gives you the freedom to implement your own concrete
environment to suit your required functionality.

[PS: this is David's version]

[these are based by a collaborative effort and are supposed to indicate
both the present of the project and the near future so that it doesn't
require too many changes in the future]

                          able to give birth to a dancing star.
