Subject RE: Why isn't Cocoon making into the commercial world?
Date Wed, 01 May 2002 00:48:46 GMT
We at kangax.com are attempting to complete a software product
specifically designed to accommodate this block approach mentioned. It
is early days but we invite people to trial and comment on our
development. If you consider that you have a building block that you
would like syndicated via the kangax interface please let us know and we
will endeavor to integrate your ideas.

Regards,

Dean McGowan

In my opinion Cocoon will hit the main stream when the Cocoon building 
blocks are ready.
At the moment people who are new to XSLT need to digest a LOT of info
just 
to make out the fundamentals of Cocoon.  Giving people the ability to
start 
out with a minimal application with just a "Hello World" sample to get
them 
going will make things a lot easier (I'm not talking about a minimized 
Cocoon like Chello).  The block approach will make it possible to add 
functionality without the need to know the insides of Cocoon.  That's
when 
we will hit the mainstream: when people can use Cocoon as a "simple"
tool 
to get results and not as a programming framework where all the tweaking

and fine tuning needs to be done before getting results.
