Hi all,
To answer my own question, a good way to get output of a pipeline
for use in the sitemap is to use the XSPAction action.
This lets you run an XSP page created by a pipeline; the XSP code
can then use <action:set-success>, <action:set-result ... />
and so on to send results out to the sitemap.
This also allows me to put session:set-attribute instructions in
the XSP code, as desired; and I can do the redirects in the
sitemap, conditional on success or failure as determined by
the XSP code.
