Subject Running Cocoon on non-compliant servlet engines
Date Wed, 20 Mar 2002 13:21:48 GMT
Hi folks,

The project I'm currently working on requires Cocoon to run on a 2-years 
old Netscape Enterprise server 4.1, which has the servlet 2.2 classes 
but doesn't implement them correctly : no context directory, no 
classloader for WEB-INF, funky resolution of context resources, etc.

So I wrote a BootstrapServlet that sets up a servlet-2.2 compliant 
ServletContext and ClassLoader and uses this environment to create the 
CocoonServlet to which it delegates request handling. And now Cocoon 
runs smoothly !

I guess this could also be used for other "legacy" engines still living 
out there. Are people interested in this ? If yes, I can add it to the 
scratchpad in CVS. Or we could even include it in the soon-to-come 2.0.2 
(Carsten ?).

For the same project, I also wrote the BlobSource (see for 
which I had no feedback up to now. Nobody interested in this ?
