[PATCH] Cocoon XML:DB Implementation should not depend on Xindice

                 Key: COCOON-1899
             Project: Cocoon
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Blocks: XML-DB
    Affects Versions: 2.2-dev (Current SVN)
            Reporter: Lars Trieloff
            Priority: Minor

Currently the cocoon-xmldb-impl block depends on Xindice as an XML database. This leads to
a number of problems when the user decides to use a different XML database, e.g. Exist:
- the configuration files injected by the build system still refer to Xindice
- Xindice is deployed as a JAR file in the application, regardless of not being in use by
the application
- It is not easy to add a different XML database by adding a new cocoon block that contains
cocoon-specific configuration files.

A better configuration would be the removal of all references to Xindice in cocoon-xmldb-impl
(dependencies as well as configuration files) and the creation of a new block cocoon-xmldb-xindice
that depends on Xindice and brings all configuration files neccessary to use Cocoon with Xindice.
Accordingly cocoon-xmldb-examples should depend on cocoon-xmldb-xindice as well.

This configuration makes it easy to create a new block for other XML-databases, e.g. Exist.
Switching to a new XML-database would be as easy as changing the dependency in the pom and
updating all connection-uris in the sitemap.
