Subject AW: Processing XSL output as XSP
Date Thu, 20 Feb 2003 09:19:24 GMT
the limitation of one generator per pipeline is no real problem here;
instead of going 'the linear way', just go 'the indirect way': you can have
the <map:generate> reference a pipeline as source. so, in one pipeline you
generate the xsp, in the other you have that xsp generate output.

your pipeline:

 <map:match pattern="course/**">
1.   <map:generate src="course/en/{1}.xml"/>

2.   <map:transform src="course/course.xsl">
	<map:parameter name="use-request-parameters" value="true"/>

 <!-- something needed here -->

4.   <map:serialize type="html"/>

steps 1. and 2. are to generate the xsp to be executed. at step 3. I assume
you want to have your xsp executed whose output is serilized to html in step

now we repackage this; steps 1. and 2. go to a separate pipeline as well as
steps 3. and 4.:

<map:match pattern="course/**">
	<map:generate type="serverpages" src="cocoon:/generated({1}).xsp"/>  <!--
referencing pipeline below -->

	<map:serialize type="html"/>

<map:match pattern="generated(**).xsp">
   <map:generate src="course/en/{1}.xml"/>

   <map:transform src="course/course.xsl">
	<map:parameter name="use-request-parameters" value="true"/>

   <map:serialize type="xml"/>

caveat: you have to hand over the request parameter to the generated.xsp
pipeline (because the call to the pipeline represents a different request)
so that the transformer can process them.
