+ * As far as I am concerned, Cocoon is the only decent framework for creating web applications.
 I've tried a little of everything: CGI (in C), server-side includes, Perl (assorted libraries),
PHP, JSP+Servelets, and even a little ASP.  The result is often a mess and a maintenance nightmare.
 Cocoon is worth the learning curve. -- [Larry Lansing]

- * There are three major ways of querying an SQL database (Actions, ESQL, and SQL Transforms),
and at least four ways of dealing with forms (Actions+Logicsheets/Transforms, XMLForm, Woody,
and Precept).  There is some overlap between these components.  Too many choices makes the
learning curve steeper. -- June 2003 -- [Larry Lansing]

- !!Form Validation

?                  +++++++++++

- * FormValidatorAction "simpler and older implementation of form validation using the FormValidatorAction"
(similar to some of the database actions!)
+ * FormValidatorAction -- Fairly simple.  Requires little or no custom Java code.  Bad for
complex multi-part forms.
- * XMLForm -- A powerful heavy-weight solution to form validation.  Requires extensive Java
code to be written for each form.  Good for complicated multi-page form wizards, but overkill
for simpler forms.  Results in a simple sitemap.

- * Woody -- a new approach to form validation that does not seem to require Java code to
be written.
