Subject Re: Why isn't Cocoon making into the commercial world?
Date Fri, 29 Mar 2002 10:14:47 GMT
In my opinion Cocoon will hit the main stream when the Cocoon building 
blocks are ready.
At the moment people who are new to XSLT need to digest a LOT of info just 
to make out the fundamentals of Cocoon.  Giving people the ability to start 
out with a minimal application with just a "Hello World" sample to get them 
going will make things a lot easier (I'm not talking about a minimized 
Cocoon like Chello).  The block approach will make it possible to add 
functionality without the need to know the insides of Cocoon.  That's when 
we will hit the mainstream: when people can use Cocoon as a "simple" tool 
to get results and not as a programming framework where all the tweaking 
and fine tuning needs to be done before getting results.
