I've always thought that a Chess Webbapp would demonstrate Cocoon power :
-It has complexe application logic (you can check the validity of a move,
you can get the whole state of the board from an XML db on only get 1 move
and calculate the new board. I think that a standard XML allready exists for
-SVG will display the board
-Abstraction layer would allow to use differents rules (I like Go more than
Chess :)
-We can make PDF report of the game with all moves in text format + pictures
of the board after strategic moves.
-We can use the same presentation component with a game database or with an
an inline multiplayer Chess client.
-It's more fun than a screw-shop sample.
