The mount table allows to mount directories external to the Cocoon webapp without
changing the main sitemap. To activate the mount-table, just copy or rename this file
to "mount-table.xml" to see it automatically activated.
Each mount below will direct requests starting with the given uri-prefix to the corresponding
sitemap. The syntax is exactly the same as the one of <map:mount>.
The mount-table is especially useful for two purposes:
- for all users, to mount into Cocoon external directories (demos, prototypes, projects) without
having to change the main Cocoon sitemap. This allows these mounts to "survive" a update to a
more recent version of Cocoon.
- for cocoon contributors, to mount the source of Cocoon examples instead of their copy placed in
build/webapp by the build process. This avoids many of the hassles related to editing a copy of
the sources, often leading to sync problems.
example: mount the woody source samples at "woody-samples/"
(don't forget the / at the end of the path name)
<mount uri-prefix="woody-samples" src="../../src/blocks/woody/samples/"/>
<!-- example: mount a prototype located elsewhere on the filesystem at "proto/"
(kept commented as the path is not likely to exist on your filesystem) -->
<mount uri-prefix="proto" src="file://c:/my/projects/prototype/"/>
