Subject request & response objects
Date Mon, 20 Oct 2003 13:35:12 GMT

	I'm slowly getting into coccon. I read I can use "request" and
"response" objects in XSP pages from my Java code. The official
documentation says these objects are instances of
HTTPServletRequest/Response, but is it really true?

I'm instantiating an object whose constructor accepts two arguments as

public TheClass (HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse

When I try to instantiate an object out of this class cocoon ends up
with an error complaining about an undefined constructor. Here is how I
instantiated the object:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsp:page xmlns:xsp="">

<xsp:expr>new TheClass(request, response)</xsp:expr>

This gets translated into the following code:

XSPObjectHelper.xspExpr(contentHandler, new WASClient(request,

And the error returned by cocoon is:

org.apache.cocoon.components.language.LanguageException: Error compiling
test_xsp: ERROR 1
(org/apache/cocoon/www/projects/was/docs/ ...
this.characters("\n\n"); // start error (lines 104-104) "The constructor
WASClient(Request, Response) is undefined"
XSPObjectHelper.xspExpr(contentHandler, new WASClient(request,
response)); // end error this.characters("\n\n"); ... Line 104, column
0: The constructor WASClient(Request, Response) is undefined

A comment into the generated code makes me think about the correctness
of the documentation, here it is:

        /* Built-in parameters available for use */
        // context    - org.apache.cocoon.environment.Context
        // request    - org.apache.cocoon.environment.Request
        // response   - org.apache.cocoon.environment.Response

So, what should I do to make my Object working? I'm using
HTTPServletRequest/Response ad, to say the thruth, I'm not so happy
changing them to be used in coccon. Anyway, if you tell me this is the
only way to go...
