Subject [ cocoon3 ] map parameters
Date Mon, 07 Nov 2011 10:57:03 GMT

I have the following pipeline in a sitemap of some block. This pipeline 
is called by other blocks, that have components in place to upload 
images. They subsequently connect to the image block to store it in an 
image database.

The pipeline uses a self made Generator, that requires two parameters 
('creatorId' and 'filename').

<map:match pattern="create/image/creator/*">
   <map:generate type="new-image">
     <map:parameter name="creatorId" value="{map:1}" />
     <map:parameter name="filename"
                    value= {jexl:cocoon.request.filename}" />
   <map:serialize type="xml"/>

Other blocks call this pipeline with a request like


The value of 'creatorId' is always null, although it should have been 
'3276800'. The value of 'filename' is OK.

Looking through the sitemap of the sample application, I did not find a 
case like the one above:

<map:parameter name="creatorId" value="{map:1}" />

My question: Is it possible to create parameter values from the request 
itself (that is, other than using request parameters)?

I can of course modify the request such that the creatorId is also 
regular request parameter, but I would like to have an answer to this
