Subject [jira] Commented: (COCOON-1898) [PATCH] XPatch support for maven-cocoon-deployer-plugin

Leszek Gawron commented on COCOON-1898:

To tell you the truth I like XPatch syntax better than your solution. You can understand what
the xpatch does even if you never seen the syntax before. Your format has to be well described,
otherwise it does not look like a patch file at all. 

XPatch is more similar to a xsl stylesheet, which is good.
XPatch due to it's full XPath (no 'c' before 'h' :)) ) support is way more powerful.

What is it that you dislike in XPatch. Maybe we could fix it.

I want to implement some more features for cocoon:deploy XPatching:

1. the ability to patch any xml file in cocoon webapp by putting the patch file into 
/src/main/resources/META-INF/xpatch/blocks/myblock/sitemap.xmap.patch.001.description or
I figured you have the same path resolution in your solution.

2. xpatch sorting:
this way you may control what patch gets applied first

3. xpatching for both development mode and full cocoon webapp

4. xpatch profiles
you will be able to apply only some patches depending on what profile you want enabled (dev,prod,test).
This may conflict a little bit with 1).

> The cocoon-deployer-plugin has currently no support for XPatch, which makes it difficult
to modify the web.xml when developing cocoon blocks. For example the cocoon-xmldb-impl block
should add, when deployed, a servlet for xindice and a servlet mapping for the xindice servlet.
This was possible in 2.1 using the XConfToolTask, but is no longer possible with the current
state of the deployer-plugin.
> My patch adds support for patching the web.xml file using *.xweb files in the /conf directory
of a block by filtering the block's jar file during deployment for conf/*.xweb files, caching
the patch document temporarily and applying them (using code from the orgiginal XConfToolTask
in 2.1) to the web.xml. The patch has currently no support for other files than conf/*.xweb
files and does not support any property expansion.
