Subject [Poll] Portal deployment / Cocoon portal usage
Date Mon, 24 Jan 2005 08:21:24 GMT
Hi everyone,

In the past months we have seen an increase in the use of the Cocoon portal
framework, which is really great. However it is still obvious that the
portal has low visibility when it comes to anyone creating a list of Open
Source java portals. In order to perhaps correct this and gain a better
impression of who is using the portal framework - what for and maybe also
why not, I have put together a short poll. 

It would be great if you could take a few minutes to answer the questions
(even if you are not actually using a portal) and send me your answers. I
will collect the results and then publish an overview on the Cocoon wiki.
Hopefully we will then also have a better understanding of what features -
for example - may be missing.

Thanks for your time.

Matthew Langham
