IMHO, we should also mention XSLT next to SAX - otherwise people could go for the
Xalan Servlet when looking for serverside XSLT. And 'leveraging' is a big no-no in
buzzword bingo :-)

Slightly rephrased:

"Apache Cocoon is an XML publishing framework that raises the usage of XML & XSLT
technologies for content-centric web applications (1) 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 & maintain rock-solid web applications.

Cocoon interacts with most data sources (from filesystems to RDBMS, from LDAP to
native XML databases) and adapts content delivery to the capabilities of different
devices (HTML, WML, PDF, SVG, RTF just to name a few). Cocoon can be used both as a
Servlet or using its powerful commandline interface.

For interactive webapps, Cocoon offers Actions and support for XSP, JSP and
Velocity."

(1) sorry ;-) - perhaps we should change this to Java web applications?
Content-centric (still) is more honest I believe.

Not meaning to offend anyone,
