Subject Benefits of using eXist with Cocoon, when XML is versioned in Subversion?
Date Wed, 24 May 2006 15:05:30 GMT

My website content is in XML and version controlled in Subversion.
I want to use Cocoon to publish HTML and PDF, etc. for all the usual 
I see that eXist is pre-integrated with Cocoon; I could import my 
documents into eXist and use that.
I can still version the source by exporting from eXist -> file system 
and "svn commit"

I am trying to get a handle on what exactly will the benefits be using 
eXist rather than just the file system.
Can anyone help?

My newbie guess is that it boils down to eXist providing certain things 
that otherwise would have to be programmed directly in the cocoon sitemap.
For example: directory generator, lucene/full text search

So.. isn't that just moving some logic from the sitemap into eXist 
configuration files?  What am I missing?
