Subject RE: What's the differences between Cocoon and servlet+XSL ?
Date Wed, 26 Sep 2001 07:05:24 GMT
Hi, this is the first time I send message to this mail list.

Recently, I'm exploring Jetspeed and Cocoon. To my understanding, the two
projects are focus on different things, Jetspeed is a portal platform that
focus on the organization each 'component' on web pages, while cocoon is a
web publishing framework that focus on dynamically build content from raw
data (xml) to different presentation formats. However, my question is,
Jetspeed got a xml presentation mechanism, so do Cocoon. Should we use them
together or should we pick only one?

In another word, could you please tell what's the differences between
Cocoon, Jetspeed and Servlet+XSL?

regards,
mingfai

Among many others, one of the main advantages of Cocoon is the sitemap
mechanism, which will allow you to dynamically build "processing pipelines"
(Generator -> Transformers -> Serializer) according to various attributes of
the request being handled.

Of course you can do the same with servlets, but in time you will most
probably find yourself reinventing most of Cocoon: sitemap, matchers,
caching, etc..
