Yes it would be great. My concern is that I don't want to display a
template page. I want to process the request (the parameters Google
Earth sends when zooming in) and within my Generator query a native XML
database system and built the algorithmic logic inside the generator
(what data out of the shreddered xml file is needed and has to be
transformed with an XSLT stylesheet). So I basically know how RESTful
webservices work, but I don't know how to use cocoon3 in this case (I
assume new Page(...) isn't the right thing to return when I just want to
pass the request params to my generator. So I don't want to use
StringTemplate in this case (but it's nontheless a great thing). So the
query points to a controller, which decides that it's a GET request
(view) and passes the parameters on to my generator (which I still have
to write). 

Would be great if you or someone else could help me out (it's a project
in a course of our university ;-) and I thought cocoon is great for this
concern (get RESTful parameters, hand it on to a generator which selects
the needed data out of a shreddered xml file according to the
parameters, then transform the xml fragments with a XSLT stylesheet and
serialize the result, so that Google Earth can use the KML fragments

Thank you,
