Subject AW: Donating Portal and Authentication Components to the Cocoon project
Date Tue, 22 Jan 2002 16:47:01 GMT
Hi Sylvain,

Thanks a lot for this donation, which will be a great step forward for
promoting Cocoon. Is this what can be seen at http://sunshine.sundn.de/ ?

Yep. This is an example portal we built to showcase some of what we are
doing for customers. I can provide you (or anyone interested) with a login
if you contact me off-list (just so our little test machine doesn't blow up
when you all try to logon :-)). Please note that _this_ portal is in
German - which is done through use of stylesheets. So the actual components
are of course language independent. Basically, once you have been
authenticated (Carsten posted something about that earlier today) your
portal profile is built up, the content fetched and then the XML data
formatted into the portal look and feel. As a user you can then change
certain properties - as defined by the portal administrator (who basically
defines this by way of an XML portal definition).

We realize that people are probably itching to get their hands on the
components and play with them - and Carsten is doing his best to get them
ready as quickly as possible - but we also have paid work we need to do as
well :-)) In the meantime we will be happy to provide as much background
information as possible - so keep the questions coming :-).
