I usually do not comment blog entries - sorry :)

:) I think this is one of the questions that can't be answered in
general and everyone has to make his own decision. There is nothing
wrong with using Cocoon today and continuing using it. It's a great,
solid, stable and powerful framework, there is a community behind it
etc. Still today I think there is nothing out there which is as powerful
as Cocoon.
But on the downside are the high learning curve, missing integration
with the hot stuff from today (OSGi, scripting etc.).
And I think it's obvious by just looking at the developer and user
list that the interest in Cocoon is definitly decreasing. If people
are starting new projects or looking for something exciting
they usually don't end up with Cocoon as we don't play in the
technology hype market.

So, if you're happy with Cocoon, use it - if you think something
else is more suited for your project, use that :)
