Subject Re: Convert text to wml
Date Fri, 06 Aug 2004 08:13:53 GMT
Remember that a generator (start of match in a pipeline)
is expected to produce a "stream" of XML  - if your text
file has no tags at all you will need to write your own
generator to add these tags in the right places, see:
http://cocoon.apache.org/2.1/developing/extending.html#When+to+write+a+Generator

(possibly an XSP might be a one way to get
started with this... - alternatively, if your text has at
least some structure to it, maybe try the SLOP generator - 
look in your installation of Cocoon under:
/samples/blocks/slop/welcome

Output will require transformation (often the second
step after the generation phase) into WML format...
you will probably require a custom stylesheet whose
code will depend on what you get from your generator
(see above) - the serializer is *not* responsible for 
doing the "formatting" - this is the job of the transformation 
step.  Perhaps you could read up more on the basic 
Cocoon concepts:
http://cocoon.apache.org/2.1/userdocs/concepts/index.html 
or this:
http://www.javaworld.com/javaworld/jw-09-2002/jw-0920-cocoon.html 
(both are a little dated, but the basic ideas are there).

i recieve a file in text format from a certain url.

The file has no tags at all. 
How can this text be output in wml format?

Can xsl be used to read a text file without tags?
Is using a wml serializer enough to give the output in wml format?
