True: OXF doesn't use a single line of code from Cocoon (as a matter
of fact we haven't even looked at the Cocoon source code). If you care
to try OXF, you will notice that we have worked hard to address lots
of issues that Cocoon has. In particular our XML pipelines are very
different from Cocoon's (we think that they are very cool, BTW ;-),
and error handling is much more user-friendly.

Whether you like our commercial approach or not, our white paper on
XML pipelines should be of interest to Cocoon'ers, and obviously comes
with no strings attached. In that document we describe our concept of
XML pipelines and present XPL, an XML Pipeline Definition Language. We
hope to release more information about XPL in the future:
