Subject Cocoon 2.2 resources outside of a Block
Date Fri, 30 May 2008 14:17:15 GMT
Hi all,

Apologies if this has been sent around before.

I'm trying to figure out how I can access resources outside of a Block
jar's, just from a directory within the Webapp:

For example:

I have the simple pipe line: 

	<map:match pattern="static/*.shtml">
		<map:generate src="content/{1}.xml"/>
		<map:serialize type="xml"/>

This is part of the block called Homepage.   In Homepage block, I have
/src/main/resources/COB-INF/content/index.xml.  This is all fine, when
access the block via jetty and tomcat, the content/index.xml file is
served from COB-INF in the Homepage.jar.

However, I don't want to have to store my xslt,  xml and all other
static files in a jar.  I don't want to have to re-jar the block and
redeploy it to tomcat or start up jetty each time I make a small change
an xslt.

I want a directory content/ within my webapp, where index.xml is read
from there. i.e.:

                              content/index.xml   <---- serve this .xml
file so I can make changes to it quickly and see the results
                              WEB-INF/lib/Homepage.jar    <--- don't
look at COB-INF/content/index.xml, if the above exists.

This is so I can do RAD development on my local development environment.
This was possible in 2.1, but it seems in 2.2 I can't find any
documentation on how this is possible.  It seems like a simple thing....

Can anyone help?
