Subject the forrest.properties-sitemap connection
Date Tue, 03 Jan 2006 18:56:07 GMT
Hi,

What is actually reading the forrest.properties data?
I am trying to understand if there is more extendability for the 
parameters, for example:
forrest.validate.skinconf.includes=${skinconf-file}
i.e. what in the Forrest engine is parsing and using this or is it Cocoon?

Taking the question a step further, is it possible then to define new 
settings in forrest.properties?
example:
*project.data=${project.content-dir}/content/data*
and if so how might this be referenced in sitemap?
For instance, say you have
     <map:part src="data/scaryalgorithms.xml"/>
which has a path project:content/data as noted above,
what is the parallell between the naming convention in 
forrest.properties and the sitemap entries of:
    *sitemap:        {project:content.data}  *
    *properties:    {project:content.**data**}
*and thus might this work
    <map:part src="*{project:data}*/scaryalgorithms.xml"/>

helps a bit in reusability of setting up new sites with Forrest.

Thankyou,
Helena
