Great achievement Francesco, congrats!!!
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? ;-)

Oggetto: [Hippo-cms7-user] Cocoon 3 based frontend Data: Wed, 08 Jun 2011 12:02:32 +0200 Mittente: Francesco Chicchiriccò <firstname.lastname@example.org> Rispondi-a: Hippo CMS 7 development public mailinglist <email@example.com> Organizzazione: Tirasa A: Hippo CMS 7 development public mailinglist <firstname.lastname@example.org>
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 sites. 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 . 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?
