Subject cocoon+eXist xquery generator isn't working
Date Fri, 23 Nov 2007 12:05:35 GMT

Dear all,

I have followed this instructions to get the xmldb protocol working
It works, and I can access my eXist db using xmldb protocol. 

I am now trying to use xquery generator, that i have specified as
<map:generator name="xquery" src="org.exist.cocoon.XQueryGenerator"/> in the
cocoon sitemap.
While accessing my db now it gives me the following error
org.exist.util.DatabaseConfigurationException: cannot read data directory:
C:\Documents and

If I change the data directory in the conf.xml to point to my db (it is at
C:\apache-tomcat-5.5.25\webapps\exist-1.1.1-newcore\WEB-INF\data). It then
says that the database has been locked org.exist.EXistException: The
database directory seems to be locked by another database instance. Found a
valid lock file:

I was wondering is there a way of specifing the exist db's location rather
than copying it to cocoon/WEB-INF/data/

Many thanks!!!

P.S. sorry for double posting, the other post
( is quite old I
wasn't sure it will get a lot of attention. Thanks again
