simple xml. the parser is a generator. i call it SimpleTextParserGenerator.
it needs an xml configuration für parsing a text stream. the xml
configuration defines which text fragment goes under which xml node.

yes, first i also thought about an external scheduling component. but such a
process should not be accessible from outside. if i do it with an external
scheduling component, i have to secure this by a password or something like
this. if it can be done inside the sitemap, this process is by default not
accessible from outside. in addition it would be very nice to configure. and
because i try to develop most to all application stuff with cocoon, and i
don't want to use an ejb container yet, i know that such a feature would be
useful for me.

ok, i try to implement something for myself first. if it then looks some
kind of nice, i will inform you about.
