Subject Re: Tricky question (?) re. JXTemplate accessing object functions, not values
Date Tue, 15 Jun 2004 06:05:55 GMT
Very quick question:

Does the Velocity generator work just as well as the JXTemplate generator?

I may end up using Velocity templates\generator instead of JXTemplate, 
but I'm a bit wary of this because the Velocity generator isn't 
mentioned very often in the cocoon doc.. :)

Regards,
Thomas Kjeldahl Nilsson
