Hi Federico,

I can't pretend to be a Cocoon expert, but IMHO the following operations are 
not very specific to what the Cocoon framework offers:

-receive messages (HTTP POST probably?)
-validate the sender (against a database?)
-validate the format (a parser with a DTD or schema will do it)
-update the XML database

So I would tend to implement them separately in a servlet or web application 
environment, trying to write reusable business logic for these functions 
(straight java servlets, enhydra or EJB).

On the other hand, I would definitely use Cocoon for this:
> offer to other clients using browser an overview of the database with 
> the current data formatted with XML/XSL technology

In summary I would consider the "receive messages" (=information production) 
and "browse data" (=information publishing) functions as separate subsystems, 
and I don't think Cocoon would help you much for the first one.
