Subject RE: [C2] Webapp directory for development...
Date Fri, 24 Aug 2001 16:10:10 GMT
I hate to do this, but I'm still confused. Can anyone help?

Thanks! That makes sense to me. Follow up questions, if I may.

1. I could start with the entire contents of the WAR. But I'm wondering if
the minimum set is:

- sitemap.xmap (and only the necessary portions of it)
- cocoon.xconf (leave as is)
- WEB-INF/web.xml (no changes)
- WEB-INF/lib (leave as is or modify according do documentation on required
- WEB-INF/db (drop if HSQL isn't needed)

I don't see that anything else is needed to start a new Cocoon based webapp.
It might be nice to have an Ant build target that builds a new directory
(similar to the WAR target) but simpler.

2. Can I create two webapp directories off of one copy of the Cocoon2
servlet? Related question: if I have two copies of all the JARs in the
WEB-INF/lib directory, are separate instances of each used (and is that a
waste of memory)?

Thanks, Per.
