I am sorry. I always meant keyword, never category. (The category is a 
typing error.)

OK, I see what you mean. The Specification class does include set/get 
methods for a number of other properties, including collections, and for 
those cases I did use the JavaBeans convention (e.g. an user selects 1 
or more categories from a given set of categories). Only for the 
keywords I used a repeater and I was under the impression that the 
addKeyword(String) method would be the appropriate way to store (add) 
keywords into the Specification (I think this was mentioned somewhere on 
the web pages of cocoon 2.1.9). I will implement this part with set/get 
methods as well. Thanks for pointing this out.

Point taken. In any case, I did appreciate your help.
