Subject Re: How to *not* return a page
Date Tue, 27 Sep 2005 10:42:21 GMT
Thanks for the detailed suggestion; I was hoping to avoid 
having to do any Java coding &amp; was hoping there might
be a more "standard" way of doing this .... if not, where 
is the best place to start learning how to code such a 
beast (the website has this page: 
which seems a little "rough" round the edges)?

You are right. Flow mandates the used of cocoon.sendPage*.

One quick solution though: Implement an action and then:

<map:action src="o.a.c.acting.MyAction" name="myaction"/>


<map:act type="myaction"/>
<map:match .../>
<map:match .../>

myaction will be called before every match so it works much like a 
function call (no pipeline side effects). If you want your matches to 
work only if action succeed do it like this:

<map:act type="myaction">
<map:match .../>
<map:match .../>
<map:match ...when action failed.../>
