Subject Re: Cocoon 2 - Webservice
Date Sat, 05 Apr 2014 13:34:58 GMT
Hi Klaus,
> I would like to implement a WebService via Cocoon. In this case, the client should send
a XML file to my service, it will be processed accordingly and delivered as a pdf back to
the client. 
> The processing of a local XML works great. Now must be implemented as a webservice. I
would have preferred RESTful, but seems all so only with cocoon 3 to come.
every thing's possible with cocoon 2! It's processing XML, so nothing is
holding you back from implementing a web service! This is just an XML
request and an XML response. Cocoon is great in handling this! We build
our project's ( web service
handling entirely with Cocoon. Even WebServiceSecurity is just another
transformer ...

RESTful services don't bring new complexity to the picture, you just
have to deal with the HTTP methods instead of having just 'POST'. You
can easily handle the http method within the sitemap.  When you assume
RESTful services work with JSON, things get a bit more tricky, as it's
not XML. In this case just XMLify the request and serialize to JSON.

See the mentioned project. If your lost (it's a bit bigger), just drop
me a line.
