Subject accessing the pipeline structure
Date Thu, 09 Sep 2004 15:00:26 GMT

Recently there were 2 requests on the users list about accessing the 
current pipeline structure.

What does the devlist think about this? Certainly cocoon is being 
stretched in all areas possible, having the need for metadata about the 
executing pipeline structure is just one example of this.

Having this extra metadata would allow for components that can produce 
different output depending on how they are used in a pipeline (but this 
probably breaks a few cocoon design rules right?). In my cocoon video 
rendering application i got around this by creating an xml control 
structure that was used by all components, so a component could find out 
what all previous components did and what the results were.

Thoughts? Is this difficult to implement? A 2.2 feature perhaps?
