New Page:

The Cocoon "Blue Book"

== Concept ==

The "Blue Book" is the working title for the Cocoon documentation project, run by the documentation
'task team'.  Its aim is to ensure a comprehensive and up-to-date set of documents that will
describe ''all'' aspects of Cocoon.  The "Blue Book" will be avaialable on-line, and be downloadable
by whole, by part or by chapter.  In development, the "Blue Book" will not 'reinvent the wheel',
but will draw on existing offical docs, wiki pages, and past mailing list Q&A as its basis.

There are some aspects, related to the Cocoon Project, that are not addressed...

* Whats New
* Future Plans
* Latest FAQ (key FAQ will be taken up into an appropriate section of the Blue Book)

= Part I:  General =

Part I is meant to be the  most 'readable' of all the sections; with well-written text, aimed
especially at the newer user and those coming to Cocoon from other 'systems' (PHP, JSP, Struts,
.NET?).  Emphasis will be on the scope of Cocoon's built-in, or readily available, functionality.
 This section will ''always'' be kept in-sync with the latest, downloadable version.
