What is Apache Forrest
Apache Forrest (tm) software is a publishing framework that transforms
input from various sources into a unified presentation in one or more
output formats. The modular and extensible plug-in architecture of
Apache Forrest is based on Apache Cocoon and the relevant industry
standards that separate presentation from content. Forrest can generate
static documents, or be used as a dynamic server, or be deployed by its
automated facility.

Forrest is implemented both as a Java servlet and a Java command line
application. The following requirements exist for installing it:

  * A Java 1.5 or later compatible virtual machine for your operating system.
