There's no need to use a servlet?
There are different ways of performing such functionality:
1. Create your own generator that knows how to retrieve the data then
generate XML in some generic format. E.g., if your busines objects are
java beans then you can use some JBean2XML mapper (f.e.: Exolab's
2. You can implement an action, which would retrieve the data and place
it (in either way: JavaBeans or XML fragments) in your request/session
attributes. In this case, if you don't want XSP in your XML you should
use/develope a tag-lib which would get the data from request or session
and expand it as needed.
3. You can create a specific transformer, which could interpret your tag
and according to them retrieve needed objects and expand them in your
original XML.
Maybe something else...

Subject: SV: Cocoon examples?

Great intro, thanks :) I'm still confused at one point though (well more
than one, but here the most). I have some businessobjects I want to
retrive data from (maybe as XML), and use this data as input for Cocoon.
How is this done? I absolutly don't want to use XSP (I don't like the
mix of content and logic). Should I set the "<map:generate src=""/>" src
to point at a servlet that returns XML? This sounds like a bad idea too
me though, but it's my best idea.
Any ideas?

Are there any examples shipped with Cocoon2? I'm having some trubles
out how it all works, so maybe some examples where I can see what to do,
the way from Java Servlets to XSL?
