This research is fairly old now (6 years), and things have moved on a 
little, although mostly in the wrong direction, as observed by others 
here (i.e. lets make highly configurable components and we'll never have 
to write code again).

I have a couple of papers that might serve as a useful introduction:

One covers the use of the XML Pipeline languages to define application 
templates [1], the other [2] introduces the design methodology that 
guides the selection of and development of components. This is probably 
way off topic from the perspective of Cocoon design discussion, but may 
be interesting nevertheless.

I have much more detail in my thesis if anyone is interested in the 
really detailed stuff.



[2] I can't reproduce this one, but I will send you a copy of the 
presentation slides and notes offlist (others should ask if they want it)
