Subject Re: Cocoon 1.7 with WebLogic 5.1.0.
Date Tue, 02 May 2000 23:30:59 GMT
	Here is what I have discovered thus far when trying to get cocoon to run on
Weblogic 5.  Mind you I am still working on Beta2 as I do not yet trust the
releases.

	First, I recommend running cocoon as a servlet under a web application.
That seems to work a little nicer and more compact.  Problem with that is
Weblogic does not seem to allow web applications (under servlet 2.2 spec) to
map patterns to servlets.  So under a given web application, I can not map
*.xml to the cocoon servlet.  Of course, you can map *.xml in the
weblogic.properties file, but then you would access the servlet without the
benefit of being under a web application (I believe you get servlet context
problems if it is not).  To remedy this, I used the proxy servlet to
re-route all requests with *.xml to a proper application/servlet name.
Example:

weblogic.httpd.register.*.xml=weblogic.t3.srvr.HttpProxyServlet
weblogic.httpd.initArgs.*.xml=redirectURL=http://myserv.myorg.org:7001/theap
p/cocoon
