Thanks for this reply.
Is there any way I can contribute toward SQL transformer (or a 
replacement) being added to Cocoon 3?
I know basic Java development, but am not familiar with the various 
libraries and frameworks involved (spring, maven, avalon, etc.).

Some kind of database input is central to the web apps we are developing 
(as it is to most web apps, I suppose), so having this functionality 
early on will determine whether going with C3 is feasible for us.
