Subject RE: Link Livesites: Cocoon 2.1.5.1
Date Mon, 01 Nov 2004 18:57:14 GMT
Our setup

Windows 2000 server
Apache 2.0.49
J2SDK1.4.2_03
Tomcat 5.0.18
Cocoon 2.1.5.1

We use the mod_jk2 connector to pass requests to Tomcat. We had tried
IIS-Tomcat isapi connector, but the Apache-Tomcat connector is easier to
setup, and I would guess, more efficient. 

Currently, we have a few sets of static files that are served from Apache
using the RedirectMatch directive. At some future time we plan to serve all
static files, images, PDF, Word, etc., directly from Apache. Reason being
that Apache is better at serving static content, especially large files,
than Cocoon. Our web page content is stored as XML flat files in the Windows
file system. All resources are stored in one directory structure. Cocoon
uses XML source from a content directory, Apache serves images and documents
from other directories, but all are under one site directory. Fairly easy to
maintain.

We are also using Cocoon for other purposes. We are using Cocoon to publish
helps screens for web based applications. The following link
http://commerce.wi.gov/apphelptest/demo.html will take you to a web page
with the various help buttons that will appear in the application screens.
Press a button, and a help screen for that section of the application
appears. Want to view all help information, just click on the Show all help
information link. When all help information appears, you can narrow down to
a specific section by clicking on the Show this section only link. All help
information for each application is maintained in an XML file specific for
that application.  XML Mind XML Editor version 2.8 is used for content
management.

We have a couple of other "non commerce.wi.gov" uses for Cocoon, but I won't
bore you with more details.

Nice - are you using an apache connector to pass Cocoon requests off
to Tomcat or some other app server?
