Just some considerations.
I like very much cocoon, its philosophy, and the way to produce
application with it and especially with forms. But we must remain
realistic: in the last years the pace of the develop of cocoon is slow
and the next release will be something different. For example, the
integration with Wicket seems to be the sign that forms will not be more
Due to the fact that I don't know how to develop a new widget for
cocoon, I was waiting for some clue or suggest to evaluate the effort
Unfortunately I have not received any answer so I'm considering to
invest my time in another framework (Wicket) that can solve this kind
problem and has a future more outlined.
