IMHO in a DSL a "static cache" has no sense.

Perhaps we can define:

request-cache="yes|no" for DSL. And this is more explicit.

I don't like this attribute is very implementation oriented. People will
need to rewrite all the forms in order to take advantage of that. Well, it
is very easy using jEdit...but... I think it is not too much dificult (and
almost no time consuming) search ancestors looking for a Repeater.

Perhaps better is: request-cache="auto|yes|no"

When the user don't this attribute in definition.xml it means he want a
SSL, right?

Wich will be the default behavior using:


Here we cannot define the cache.

I thought we can create a new method:


The more I think about this, I am more thinking the best is to make this
automatically and let cocoon decide when use the cache or not.

Another question: How to access the request attributes from without touching another file? I cannot see how
to get the FormContext from the DSL code.

BTW, The code is almost done.

Antonio Gallardo.
