Subject [C3] Fwd: [Hippo-cms7-user] Cocoon 3 based frontend
Date Wed, 08 Jun 2011 10:08:44 GMT
Hi there,
fist of all, sorry for the cross-posting.

You can find below an e-mail that I've just sent to the Hippo CMS 
mailing list.
There is some concrete possibility to use Cocoon 3 in a (rather small, 
as said) production environment.

I would basically like to build a JCR SAX transformer (similar in 
functions to the Cocoon 2.1 WebDAV transformer) but I would also need, 
for example, some caching and i18n features.

Do you see any particular issues besides the obvious risk of using an 
Alpha-2 (not yet Alpha-3) software for production? ;-)

Hi all,
we've recently got a (rather small, indeed) customer with a very
particular need: to be able, in the near future, to migrate either all
the documents from its current legacy CMS and also all of its Cocoon 2.1
They basically want to preserve - as much as possible - past investments
done in terms of XSLTs and components.

We are now defining the basic structure of our project and we do want to
put Hippo CMS 7.6 in place. Of course this would mean to replace all the
HST2 stuff that is normally involved when building sites with some
Cocoon-based components.

Looking at the documentation, I've found this reference to the Hippo's
JCR interface [1]. Do you think it would be fine to build something that
will interact with Hippo repository at that level or instead there are
some higher-level classes from HST2 that should instead taken into account?

Do you have any particular advice when doing such operation? Is there
any more documentation we should take a look at?
