Subject Re: Having all the sitemaps in one directory
Date Fri, 05 Jul 2002 00:07:12 GMT
Uh...please don't do this....

I'm with Stefano - keep it relocatable. Putting them all together will dramatically change
the way
coocon must be set up and managed.
For example - on the NASA Kennedy Space Center portal I'm syndicating a sitemap with each
package (representing a channel, content area, portlet, or whatever term you like), and then
automounting them on the subscribing server. As it stands now, this works out great. This
gives me
huge flexibility on what I can syndicate (database apps using the SQLTransformer, JSPs even),
makes distribution very simple.
