Subject Re: Using XQJ API with Cocoon3
Date Tue, 05 Jul 2011 12:49:12 GMT
Hi Robby!!!
as I wrote you on Twitter, this is something *really* interesting that
must be included in the Cocoon distribution :)

We can include that module quite easy, all you have to do is

 * checkout/update the C3 /trunk;
 * add needed dependencies in the <dependenciesManagement> in the
 * add your code in the /cocoon-optional module in a proper package -
see the existing codebase as samples how we already managed 3rd
parties integrations
 * make a patch and submit it on JIRA

Looking forward to hear from you soon, all the best!!!

the XMLDB API initiative and are focusing on XQuery for Java (XQJ) instead.

 I would like to start a little thread to find out if we can add a new XQJGenerator to the
optional cocoon module.
