Subject RE: Return xml from an Action to the pipeline?
Date Sun, 16 Oct 2005 22:27:16 GMT
Having never created a generator, I can't comment on that, but it sounds
like a good idea.  Can anyone estimate how much effort this requires?

Another way might be call the java lib from flowscript, creating a DOM.
Then pass the DOM to a JXTemplate (along with any other DOMs you want to
'merge' with).  The flowscript would look as follows:

var reportDom = Way.To.Create.Dom.From.Some.Java.Lib();
var otherDom = Way.To.Load.Your.Other.Dom();
cocoon.sendPage("merge-jxpipe", {"reportDom" : reportDom, "otherDom":
otherDom } );

The JXTemplate could be as simple as the following:


Then you could use XSLT to do the merge.

Actions should not return XML. Why not write a generator instead?
