Our samples used to show many different output formats with the standard 
"Hello world". I hope they are available in Cocoon 2.2 as well.

Looking at the samples mentioned above is probably the easiest thing. It 
depends on the input format for the serializer what you have to change 
in the pipeline (what you call "map clauses"). In particular, it should 
be very easy to produce RTF and PS by just switching the serializer 
since both should use FOP as for PDF. For other output formats like 
Excel (XLS) where the serializer needs different input (Gnumeric XML in 
this case instead of XSL FO) you also need a different transformer.

Hope this helps,
