What is it?
-----------
Apache Cocoon is a web development framework built around the concepts of
separation of concerns (making sure people can interact and collaborate on a
project, without stepping on each other toes) and component-based web
development.
Cocoon implements these concepts around the notion of 'component pipelines',
each component on the pipeline specializing on a particular operation. This
makes it possible to use a Lego(tm)-like approach in building web solutions,
hooking together components into pipelines without any required programming.
Cocoon is "web glue for your web application development needs". It is a glue
that keeps concerns separate and allows parallel evolution of all aspects of
a web application, improving development pace and reducing the chance of
conflicts.
Requirements
------------
Cocoon has been designed to coexist and interoperate side-by-side with your
existing J2EE solutions or to give them new functionality without requiring
any change in the existing infrastructure.
Cocoon is implemented both as a Java servlet and a Java command line
application. The following requirements exist for installing it:
o A Java 1.3 or later compatible virtual machine for your operating system.
o A Servlet API 2.2 compatible Servlet Engine or J2EE Application Server.
[not required for command line operation]
