I think many of us started believing in the Cult of Barbara. After all for
many of us that never saw a "hairy beasts" as XSLT and Cocoon. I think
this was the easier way to start using Cocoon. Many of us saw this: XSP is
easy to learn and Java is well known, I can believe in this cult. We can
call this also "The beginning", because of us started using Cocoon trying
to find better ways of development. :)

After ending the 1 application while learning Cocoon and some hard battles
with the "hairy beasts". The beasts started to be tamed for us. Then we
started losing our faith in the cult of Barbara, because we saw how
dificult will be mantain the new scripting lang. called XSP. :(

At that time many of us started the exodus and at the beginning was the
cult of 'Carsten, the Early Years'. Then is the "The transformers". :)
There was a time (before Flow) that the idea was use transformers and
actions for every thing. But this showed also problems related to database
intensive applications. I never being part of this. :( But the transformer
idea remain as a good legacy for the next generations.

Seriously, where I can find more about "Apples" and "Dywel"? It is being
be part of Cocoon?
