Cocoon 2.2 – A long Journey (CocoonGT 2007 Keynote)

This year I had the honour of doing my second keynote presentation for a Cocoon GetTogether. On popular demand I was talking about Cocoon 2.2 and the developer’s motivations behind all the new stuff:

  • Spring 2.0 as component container
  • the Servlet-Service framework that establishes contracts in modular web applications
    (no dependency on Cocoon core – easily resuseable outside the Cocoon world)
  • Easier configuration using the Spring Configurator. There is no need for patching XML configuration files.
    (no dependency on Cocoon core – easily resuseable outside the Cocoon world)
  • Easier development
    • three Maven 2 archetypes available to give  your Cocoon 2.2 project a jump start
    • run any Cocoon 2.2  block using the Cocoon Maven plugin which allows reload of any resources, also Java classes and Spring bean defintions

Here is my presentation as a PDF.
