Subject RE: sample web-app too complex?
Date Mon, 03 Feb 2003 14:52:44 GMT
When trying to help a frustrated new user recently, I did something like
this for 2.0.4.  I believe the clean-webapp Chris mentioned is only in
2.1dev?  I assembled a minimal webapp that did only static xml and static
xsl, had no other samples, and had most of the unecessary (for a static
hello world) component definitions in sitemap.xmap commented out.

The process I used is documented at
http://wiki.cocoondev.org/Wiki.jsp?page=CreateMinimalWebapp

If that is of interest to anyone I could upload the war too, but it's 5meg
and I'm stuck till tomorrow with dial up access.  It's also built for
jdk1.4.
