Subject RE: cocoon comparison with dom4j

 What is advantage of using a publishing framework like cocoon as opposed to
using xalan to transform xml to HTML?.  What are the pros and cons?  Thanks.

Sure--its all in the JVM

Yes--though for performance reasons I don't know why you would
want to.  We do it for small DOM fragments that we need to
reference later.

What purpose does this support?

This is part of Xalan

Same thing.

Absolutely--it is at the core.

Absolutely this is the core feature of Cocoon 2

Cocoon version 2.0+ is an incredible beast that does your little
laundry list and more.  But keep in mind Cocoon is a framework.
If you need a library's functionality, then include the library.
Cocoon is not a DOM implementation, it is not a Parser, it is
not an XPath API.  It USES those things, but Cocoon is a publishing
framework--pure and simple.
