Hi Hubert.

Your previous question was a little unclear, but I'll try my best to help.

Generally the way I handle logicsheets and XSP is as follows:

1) take an XML file (what you refer to in your message as "my server page" I would say is
not a server page; it's just a regular xml file)

2) at compile time (i.e., using Ant and Xalan, not Cocoon) I perform an XSLT against that
XML file using the logicsheet.  The result is the XSP server page. (what you refer to in your
message as "output is" I would say is your server page; this now needs to get executed)

3) at run time (i.e., using Cocoon, in your sitemap), execute the server page (using  <map:generator
name="serverpages" src="org.apache.cocoon.generation.ServerPagesGenerator").  This will perform
the database calls and make all the esql tag substitutions.

It is also possible to do step 2 at run time (i.e., using Cocoon), although it's a bit more

HTH.  Email back if you need more info.
