Subject RE: Latest on Cocoon?

I really can't understand why you would still like to use XSP while there are far better alternatives
out there?  I was in the exact same position 6 years ago where we had this large Cocoon application
using solely xsp's. We took the decision to rewrite all functionality to flowscript / jxtemplate
and we never regretted this decision.  And 2 years back I decided to switch to Cocoon 2.2
and yet again no regrets.  Sure, you have to do quite a bit of additional work but postponing
an upgrade will fire back at you in the long run.  Not saying you have to be an early adapter
but once those early birds have used it for 1 year in production environments and most bugs
are removed... you should definitely consider it.

I'm about to start writing my first Cocoon 3 app while it's still in alpha-2 ...  See how
that turns out ;-)

Kind regards,

XSP block is not longer maintained under cocoon > 2.1. Anyaway, I was
able to build and use the 2.1 xsp block with cocoon 2.2 a few months
ago, for testing pruposes.
That seems to work pretty well (all my tests on existing XSPs were
Although, I did not plan to use that on production environments...
