Subject Re: When Upgrading to 2.2...
Date Tue, 20 Nov 2007 16:31:48 GMT
Thanks for your response.

This app. was written very early on, so I never implemented Cocoon Forms, Authentication,

The application makes use of the session transformer, sql transformer, and built in modular
database actions.

I've had experiences in upgrading where certain components have been deprecated, changed,
or renamed so I wanted to get a heads up on what to look out for or what upgrading issues
I should be concerned with.

Thanks again for your suggestions, your help, and your responses.

Java 1.4 (but 1.5+ is recommended), Servlet container compatible with Servlet 2.4 specification.

Optional dependency is Maven (verion 2.0.6+) used for building and deploying your application.
can use other toolkits of course but Maven integration offers a lot of facilities when it
comes to
developing applications based on Cocoon.

I don't understand this question, could you elaborate a little?

All custom components developed for 2.1 should work very well in 2.2. Only some minor changes
configuration could be needed.

It would be great if you could tell us which blocks (and components) you are using. For example,
you use Cocoon Forms or Database components (like SQLTransformer)?

For a start I would suggest to follow these tutorials:

and then at this page:
(it points to the directory where you would need to put configuration of your custom components)

I hope that it helps a little bit.
