Subject RE: Use Case for Cocoon with JSF?
Date Thu, 17 Dec 2009 15:04:19 GMT
I think that if you're generating the userinterface using JSF, it
doesn't really make much sense to transform it later on with Cocoon. In
that case I'd stick completely with JSF itself. I could imagine the
other use case where you generate JSF templates on the fly using Cocoon.

Kind regards,

I take it no one can come up with a use case for Cocoon with JSF. . .  
so I will consider my rewrite as a new JSF application, without  
Cocoon. That seems to make the most sense.
