Subject Re: simpel cocoon question (typo-correction)

Hy again;
Sorry, there was a typo in my example. Of course
it must be:

1.) From within the cocoon sitemap you would
create something like this within a pipeline:

<map:match pattern="projects.xml">
   <map:generate  src="/projects.xml"/>
   <map:transform type="xslt" src="mytransformer.xsl">
     <map:parameter name="viewfile" value="views.xml"/>
   </map:transform>
   <map:serialize/>
</map:match>

regards, hussayn
