Subject Initialization and background threads
Date Thu, 01 Aug 2002 18:16:35 GMT
Hi List,

   The web app I'm developing with Cocoon needs to initialize a few 
things at startup and perform some tasks in the background like database 
cleanup, checking for mail, automating site updates. Is there a good way 
to integrate this with Cocoon?

For the initialization, I'm reading in an XML file to create resources 
available to my Cocoon components. I'd like to use the same parser 
configured for Cocoon. I've though about adding something like this to 
cocoon.xconf:

<init-param>
   <param-name>load-class</param-name>
   <param-value>MyClass</param-value>
</init-param>

and using a static initializer to perform the initialization and start 
the background thread, but I don't see how I could get access to the 
Cocoon environment. I'd like to be able to access components and 
resources through Cocoon.

Thanks,
   Justin
