Cocoon book

Still working through the Cocoon text. The book covers 2.0. I was having trouble getting some of the PDF examples and sub-map examples to work right so I went ahead and installed 2.0 instead of trying to get their examples to work on my 2.1 install. Once I’m through I’d like to circle back, read the 2.1 release notes and figure out why their 2.0 examples were broken.

Tonight I got MySQL installed, loaded with some test data, and configured for access by Cocoon. It was extremely straightforward. I want to code up a little Cocoon app for managing the MySQL test data. Then, I’m going to hook in my Xindice install and play with that through Cocoon. Next, it’ll be writing a simple generator and serializer for Documentum.
