Subject Re: Create documents from transformation connector

Hi Julien,

That is one thing you cannot do with the MCF pipeline. All documents must
originate in a RepositoryConnector.  The repository connector can create
multiple subdocuments itself, if need be, but the rest of the pipeline does
not allow further splitting.

One way around this: If the second document is intended for a second
output, you can write a transformer that just converts the original
document into the "new" one, and then create your pipeline so that your
transformer is in the path to the second output but not the first.

Your description of the problem argues, however, for adding archive
disassembly to the file system connector, frankly.
