Subject Newbie: Command line invocation
Date Thu, 21 Mar 2002 19:17:30 GMT

I would like to use and extend Cocoon 2 to perform transformation from an
arbitrary format to another arbitrary format, with some complex
transformation rules thrown in. I like the Generator - Transformer -
Serializer approach of the pipeline pattern, and need to use SAX-based
parsers for performance & have the possibility to use XSL/XSLT to do more
simple transformation.

I have managed to get the build working and can invoke Cocoon via the
command line. I have seen a number of people on the list asking why there
are no examples of using Cocoon from the command line and they are all told
to look at the run.bat / files. This tell you nothing about how to
use Cocoon! 

What do I need to do to set up a transformation? Lets say I want to convert
an HTML doc to text. How do I configure Cocoon to find the file and to use
the HTMLGenerator, a proprietary Transformation class and a TextSerializer
???? Do I need to modify the cocoon.xconf file (this is loaded correctly) or
create a sitemap.xmap file?????

Maybe I am trying to use Cocoon the wrong way but unless I am told otherwise
I will end up implementing a pipeline framework just because there are no
simple examples! Can't someone post a Hello World example for the command
