Subject cocoon 2.3 will NOT be in java - may be in PERL
Date Thu, 01 Nov 2007 00:47:44 GMT

I am newbie to cocoon. I don't understand why the installation have to 
be from source. Why not just distribute cocoon as a binary. The good 
part about java is that we don't have to build the program, and the 
binaries are plat form independent. Building and installing cocoon 
somehow reminded me of "make" and "configure" in the old days of C/C++.

Another interesting question. I understand that cocoon is great and it's 
used for "separation of concerns" and ... and , and many other things, 
and with little efforts and coding, it can even do my laundry and walk 
my dog and make pizza for me. But seriously, what is't for? I have built 
the war file, and had a look at the samples, but didn't see any thing 
different. Again, I don't wanna get anyone mad, and I agree it's the 
perfect technology, but where does it fit ? I can do every thing  in the 
samples with different XSLT's. SO what's the big deal?

About the tutorials, can I get started without using maven. Why do I 
need to learn maven before I learn cocoon.
The reason I need to know more about cocoon, because I was working the 
other day with jetspeed, and then I started to play with apache lenya 
which depends on cocoon. So I decided to have a look at cocoon, and know 
I find myself in front of another tool (maven). Will this chain ever 
end?? The bottom line, is there any "plain cocoon tutorial" ? If not, 
any advice about how to start without having to read the source code  ;)
