Subject RE: MVC Framework - options?
Date Tue, 11 May 2004 06:14:31 GMT

I am not sure that anyone is planning to try and integrate
Struts *and* Cocoon - I think the idea is to replace Struts
with Cocoon in the Spring-Hibernate setup.

Again, I'll be begging - if you have the experience with this,
won't you consider "releasing" some of that knowledge (i.e.
more than just the odd, tantalizing tidbit) to those of us still 
wanting to take this type of approach?

We are using Spring to manage the lifecycle of our various product
components in both the EJB container and the WEB container. For Cocoon,
just made an Avalon component that initializes the Spring Framework and
components managed by it. The trick is making sure the Avalon component
called before any of the components managed by Spring are needed.

I haven't tried to integrate it with Struts. I'm not sure what the
value is
here since IMO Cocoon's controller is more powerful than Struts.

Look fwd to your "report back" - I will also read the article
with more attention to details and try and see where the 
hooks are hidden - the text *did*  imply the frameworks
were loosely coupled....


As previously mentioned, I am trying to do something similar "in my 
copious free time" (TM). I'm not so sure that plugging Cocoon in place

of Struts is as easy as it might seem, since AFAIU Spring has some
already in place for dealing with Struts.
