Subject Re: Best of both worlds Cocoon & JSF.
Date Thu, 12 Aug 2004 18:52:44 GMT
Thanks for the post Derek,

Also thank you for taking the time to point to my wee-site! I will add
acknowledgement to all who created Cocoon, the architecture is so clean and
truly enables formal separation of concerns for XML enterprise applications.

My little site, is still very much under development, and as mentioned
previously just runs on a little PC in a spare room. As per usual, time is
the killer of creativity and I have not had the time to invest to move the
site forward. It's very much an alpha, if that!! I will within months,
integrate OpenCMS, to enable all articles... stories (most content) to be
managed remotely. I've written my own tiny content manager, but after
looking at OpenCMS it fits the bill for my little site.

Oh yes you are right! I can't spell, and will make the corrections ;)
