Agree with that, although I've been (successfully and happily)
building complete applications with Cocoon in the past, I wouldn't do
that today anymore.

But if I have to process XML data or generate various formats from
XML, the above functionalities remain a good choice - ideally
embeddable in today's java environments. That's why I'm keeping an eye
on Cocoon 3, although I haven't been able to do more than that lately.

Agree with that as well.
