Please do not send multiple requests without waiting for
answers. The world is round and people are asleep, others
are busy. Someone will try to help you sooner or later
so don't panic.

Don't guess. If you want to do such advanced things
with Forrest, then you will need to take some time
to learn the Cocoon sitemap.
has some good references directly to the Cocoon docs.

I noticed in your subsequent posting to our "dev" list
that you had multiple generators and serializers.
Cocoon does not work like that. You will get seriously
frustrated by just guessing. Try some simple enhancements

What you have below is closer to working than what you
sent to the dev list.

Your files would have .html extension i presume.
Also you placed the files in content/javadocs/
So perhaps (i didn't try it) ...
<map:when test="{project:content}{1}{2}.html">
However make sure that your browser request is

> <map:generate src="{project: content.xdocs}{1}{2}.ehtml" />

Syntax error with that extra space. Anyway it will be exactly
the path in the test above.

By the way, be careful with making changes to the core
of Forrest. Better to use a project sitemap.
