Subject Re: XMLForms, configurable actions, and SOAP service
Date Fri, 26 Sep 2003 22:46:54 GMT
Hello Oleg,

first the bad news: XMLForms is deprecated. The good news: The 
recommended form framework for Cocoon is Woody. I never have used it 
until now, but it seems to be much more sophisticated.

The second part is SOAP. On a running Cocoon 2.1 system having the 
samples installed you can find the following: with a description: "Cocoon ships 
with facilities for immediate connection to SOAP resources. These 
examples show you how to connect to any web service with a few lines of 
XML markup using SOAP XSP Logicsheet." "Examples using Apache 
Axis to give access to Cocoon via SOAP."

I hope it mets you needs.
