Subject Re: Very Strange Cocoon 2.4.1 Problem
Date Wed, 16 Mar 2005 20:25:01 GMT
Sorry for the follow up on my own post, but I learned that this issue has to do with 
class files in Tomcat's work space.  I removed the .java and .class files from the 
work directory for Cocoon, under Tomcat, and *nearly* all of the pages then worked. 
The strange thing is that at least two out of dozens of pages still generated blank html.

I did the copy procedure below and they then worked.  Anyway, on to testing the 
original issue!  I'm sure it'll be fine now.  Thanks.
