Subject Re: passing data from flow to jx (lots of typing)
Date Fri, 05 Nov 2004 10:49:07 GMT
If i've understood you right you seem to be using the cforms mechanism
to transfer bizdata into xml to then be transformed?

If so why dont you pass your bizdata bean or whatever else through to
your jx template as a parameter of sendPage()?

var biz = getBackendBizdata();
cocoon.sendPage("my-pipeline-view", {"biz" : biz});

then in your jx template you will be able to call properties/methods
of that object.

 <myfield> ${biz.myField}</myfield>

Is that what you mean or are you using cforms in some other way?
