Subject Re: Questions about migration from cocoon 2.1 to cocoon 2.2
Date Thu, 24 Jul 2008 15:46:16 GMT
I am using cocoon with maven and jetty in my development environment.  
I develop and test individual blocks. Then I build my block jar files  
and my cocoon application. Once everything works in maven/jetty  
development environment I build application war file and put it in my  
test environment which runs with tomcat. Test/production environment  
does not need maven or jetty.

I don't know if you can have non-jar blocks. One of my blocks does  
not contain any java code - just pure html, but still it's a jar file  
inside my cocoon application.
