Subject Sitemap Auto-Mount challenge
Date Thu, 06 May 2004 19:17:46 GMT
Hi People

I have a requirement to automount sub sitemaps but don't want sub sites!

To explain a little I have a single application that is growing very
large day by day and the sitemap has been divided into multiple
sub-sitemaps currently using  the <map:mount> approach as follows:-

   <!-- map an external sitemap for ROB100 -->
   <map:match pattern="rob100**">
      <map:mount uri-prefix="" src="xmap/rob100.xmap"

   <!-- map an external sitemap for ROB300 -->
   <map:match pattern="rob300**">
      <map:mount uri-prefix="" src="xmap/rob300.xmap"

    etc, etc...

While the files (xsp's, xslt, etc) all share a common directory
structure and are referenced from the sub-sitemaps. This is working fine
but I would like to remove the requirement to keep editing the main
sitemap to add these <map:mount>'s. I have investigated the automount
feature of Cocoon but this requires the files to be deployed as separate
entities each with a sitemap.xmap which I can't do as the application is
one main app with multiple modules.

Is there anyway to direct all request to rob100.xsp, rob100_logon.xsp,
rob100_search.xsp etc to the rob100.xmap while directing all requests
for rob200.xsp, rob200_* to the rob200.xmap?

I'm running Cocoon 2.1.3, Tomcat 5.0.18, JDK1.4 and would really
appreciate any guidence on this problem or any pointers on how this
could possibly be achieved (i.e. using an xpath expression or an action

Thanks in advance for any input - hope I have explained the problem ok?

Kind Regards
