Subject RE: [proposal] smaller root sitemap
Date Tue, 23 Nov 2004 21:14:51 GMT

I don't want to interfere, I'm not a Cocoon committer but I've used Cocoon
over a year now and I totally agree with Ralph, Sylvain and in particular
Antonio. A sitemap.xconf and sitemap.xmap, splitting declaration and
invocation of the components, seems the best solution IMO.

But you should not forget cocoon.xconf. For example, if I want the portal
block, you need to add some components (authentication, aspect, session,
etc.) to your cocoon.xconf. What I think would be really nice is a minimal
cocoon.xconf and sitemap.xconf in WEB-INF. The users should never have to
change these files!

In addition, block specific components should only be present in block
specific sitemap.xmap (pipelines), sitemap.xconf (components declaration)
and cocoon.xconf (components configuration).

This sounds great to me.
