Hi I'm setting up cocoon as a web publishing resource at a british university.

I am interested in using mod_proxy instead of the coyote jk jk2 mod_webapp family of connectors. This is because it looks easier to set up and is reusable (i can use it to mount perl servers, .NET servers etc.) I hope to write an article on configuring the caching of mod_proxy as we have some large (300 page +) pdf files that are generated from xhtml which place a large load on the cocoon server.

I also intend to write a guide on setting up a tomcat server and optimising it for cocoon and xml > pdf and xml > svg generation as this is what i'll be doing. I have now written the first stab of this FOPTuningGuide I shall write more as I learn about it.

See Cocoon2.1m2SetupLinuxredhat8.0 for a quick dirty guide on how to setup cocoon on redhat 8 and why i decided to go for redhat 9 instead (java.awt.headless= true doesn't work)

For contact details google for caleb racey newcastle, my name is rare, i work in University of newcastle upon tyne. I don't want more spam and spammers can overcome most of the obfuscation techniques i know so i'm trying to limit the number of places it appears.
