Subject [Morphos] Status?
Date Sun, 14 Jul 2002 16:25:23 GMT
What is the status of the Morphus project? I read the discussion about 
the potential API some time ago and I'd like to know whether there is 
consensus about these interfaces.

Background: I have isolated the Gnumeric->Excel conversion stuff from 
Cocoon. The plan was to make this one of the first Morphers. However, I 
have not figured out yet how this should work with the proposed Morpher 

  public interface Morpher {
      void morph(Object input, Object output) throws MorphException, 

      void addNotificationListener(NotificationListener nl);
      void removeNotificationListener(NotificationListener nl);
      void clearNotificationListeners();

Problem: Because of his former life as C2 serializer, my wannabe Morpher 
is an org.xml.sax.ContentHandler (essentially). Thus, there is no single 
"input" object, but a series of SAX events. I guess this is a quite 
typical incarnation for XML transforming code. So, how should a Morpher 
deal with this situation?

Another question: What is the task of NotificatonListener and how should 
it look like?
