Subject RE: [2.1] Future of Cocoon 2.1.x... again :)
Date Mon, 12 Dec 2011 13:47:34 GMT
Cocoon 2.1.11 should be working with any JVM 1.3 and up.
Because nobody is actually using 1.3 anymore for development, there were several occasions
that library features not available in 1.3 crept in.
Therefore it was decided that the next release 2.1.12 should require 1.4.
I would not recommend actually using 1.3 or 1.4 anymore because of its non-existent memory

Cheers, Alfred.

Cocoon 2.1.x was meant to be used with 1.3
But the release notes file of the current 2.1.12-dev mention 1.4 as minimum requirement !

What JDK are you using?  It seems like you will need a very old JDK for this branch to work.

Hi team,

I recently came again across annoying 2.1 bugs, which I have proposed patches for, and realized
that I received almost no answers to my "what's the future of Cocoon 2.1" e-mail, and that
my patches have not been reviewed nor committed.
I have found and patched a new one this morning :

As I previously said, I fully understand that current Cocoon committers are focused on Cocoon
3, and that they probably have no great interest to old maintenance releases.
Again, I totally volunteer to help to maintain and release 2.1.x branch, as I have dozens
of production applications on top of it, running with a a-lot-patched Cocoon.
Please tell me what I can do to help.

Hi Cedric,
as I wrote in [8], here it follows what I did for building C2.1 trunk (in order to start applying
your patches, of course):

1. svn co cocoon-2_1_X
2. cp
3. set include.all.blocks=true
4. ./
5. ./ test

resulted in 6 test failures (DefaultRunnableManagerTestCase)

Am I doing something wrong?

Hi Cocoon team,

A little more than one year ago, I sent a mail [1] to this list, to get feedbacks about usage
of Cocoon 2.1.x, 3 years after the last release.
I must admit that I received many more answers (privately and publicly on the list) than I
could have expected first.
This proved me the vitality of the 2.1.x community.
So I began to open some tickets [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] and provide some patches gathered
during the last years on my projects, but unfortunately, I received nearly no feedback from
committers around here.
Is there still any interest from devs for the 2.1.x branch ?
Could someone review the patches ? I obviously volunteer to help, to stop having to run dozen
apps with a patched Cocoon.
Has someone interest to prepare and schedule a 2.1.12 maintenance release ?

Best regards,

[2], allow to use SLF4J
[3], bug in the ResourceReader
[4], possible bug with SitemapSource under
certain circumstances
[5], XHTMLSerializer from serializers block
does not handle HTML5
[6], subclassing of org.apache.cocoon.Cocoon
[7], override upload params in CocoonServlet
