Subject Parameters in Forrest cli.xconf seem to have no effect
Date Mon, 06 Jun 2005 06:37:36 GMT
I'd appreciate your opinion on a problem I have with Cocoon in
Forrest using a cli.xconf and parameters like checksums-uri and
dest-dir (see steps below).

My questions:

- did I do something wrong in using these params?
- can you discern any other reason why they are not working
- any suggestions on how to get checksums to work?

Thanks for your help

Here is what I did

1. Seeded a new forrest site in mysite
2. Create new dir
3. Copied P:\forrest\main\webapp\WEB-INF\cli.xconf to

4. Added new line




5. Added the setting


   below the commented section.

6. Did a 'forrest site'

Now I should have found a new directory build/checksums.
But I did't.
I checked the rest of the Forrest project tree. No difference.

7. To be sure I created the directory and did a 'forrest site' once

Nothing changed. New dir remained empty.

8. Now I changed the setting (to be sure mir cli.xconf was processed)



9. Deleted build and did a 'forrest site'

Output was still written to build/site.

10. Finally I added

         <exclude pattern="**/*.html"/>

and found that no more html-pages where written to site.

My Conclusion:

        I had modified the correct cli.xconf.
        The exclude pattern is recognized.
        The other options are not processed.
