And this is what the freshmeat people have made out of it:
-----
Apache Cocoon is an XML publishing framework. Cocoon offers a flexible
environment based on the separation of concerns between content, logic, and
style. A centralized configuration system and sophisticated caching help you
to create, deploy, and maintain rock-solid XML server applications. Cocoon
interacts with most data sources, including filesystems, RDBMS, LDAP, and
native XML databases. It adapts content delivery to many different formats,
such as HTML, WML, PDF, SVG, and RTF. Cocoon currently runs as a Servlet or
from a powerful command-line interface.
