Subject Re: Parameters in request get lost when using servlet: protocol
Date Wed, 04 Apr 2007 08:02:41 GMT
Sounds good. We had this discussion a few months ago, where Daniel explained 
the problems with the parameters:

I'd like to mention that there are two things we are talking about (I was 
mixing them up in my first post ;-):

1) the original HTTP request parameters
2) cocoon attributes that can be set by the caller

The first was solved by you easily since it is static and overriding works 
as expected. But with setting attributes (eg. by an action in a sitemap), 
the separation between global attributes (for any block) and local 
attributes (only for the current block and maybe the one's called by him) is 

There is also the request-scoped bean mentioned, where some work has 
happened in the last time (regarding cocoon Environment). But I don't know 
if this is in a state that allows you to do new things or at least implement 
the 2nd point more easily.
