News and updates

On October 5th and October 6th, the days before the Cocoon Gettogether 2005, there is a Hackathon foreseen at the Felix Meritis Foundation building in the center of Amsterdam (see CocoonGT Map of Amsterdam).

The main idea is to use this page to hack together some agenda for both days, please make this a joint effort. There's one big moshpit-like room available for us on the third floor, which can hold up to 60 or 80 people.

The Hackathon will start on both days at 9:00 AM and end around 17:00.

Infrastructure and logistics

[ArjeCahn] There will be:

Other things needed?

For the Cocoon internals tour, we'll need either a fairly large whiteboard, or a flip chart and tape to assemble pages together or stick them on the walls.

Agenda ideas

Cocoon internals tour and documentation

ReinhardPoetz I talked with Carsten and he is willing to give a guided tour through the Cocoon internals (pipeline building, environment handling, component management, ...). Basically we will look at the code and he will explain what happens. This will also be a good chance to write some documentation about the Core.

I guess that this workshop will take about 4 hours.

Great idea! I think (unless Carsten comes with drawings already) we should create interaction diagrams and other drawings on the fly on a whiteboard, and take pictures of them when done. This could good documentation that could be available right after the meeting, without requiring much more work if we put some effort into getting the drawings right and good enough to publish as is. -- [Bertrand Delacretaz]

JorgHeymans Sylvain mentioned a few times that there is still some work to be done to throw located exceptions on all "interesting" places in the core (and possibly outside of it as well). Possibly these places could be identified easier during Carsten's walkthrough, as he's likely to follow a logical route through the internals. Just an idea though... it seems like a well defined chunk of work.


Cocoon Bitch Board

Let's collect what we hate the most about our beloved project. We might then extract a new TODO/Roadmap from that. (Andrew, I hope that doesn't steal your thunder for the presentation :)


Cocoon blocks - OSGI integration

ReinhardPoetz Continue the work started in Stuttgart.


Stabilizing CForms

http://wiki.apache.org/cocoon/22StabilizeCocoonForms, http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/showdependencytree.cgi?id=25099


cocoon.zone configuration

Automatic startup of apache2 and Daisy needs to be configured.

In addition to the current release, demos of the current branch and HEAD should be setup, in theory everything's ready to make it easy.


More Ajaxization

I (MaxPfingsthorn) would like to help some more with ajax for forms, and maybe start ajaxizing the portal block as well (for snappiness, like http://www.netvibes.com/, or http://www.google.com/ig).


Update Lucene block

Update Lucene block to support more Lucene features, like sorting and the MultiSearcher. It could also manage open indices a bit better. Maybe, it could also include a bridge to nutch for searching (not sure how that works, but having a full-scale search engine integrated in cocoon would be great!).


HTTP headers problems in 2.1.7

http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=36872 ("internal pipelines and map:mount eat HTTP headers without warning") should be fixed before the next release, it's a blocker for people using front-end caches like mod_cache.


M10N

JorgHeymans Work on m10n (mavenization) of the 2.2 build. Overlaps with osgi development. Look into leveraging archetypes for "scaffolding" concept.


Making cocoon more accessible

JorgHeymans Recently, ideas like GUI based install [1], application scaffolding [2] and demonstration videos have emerged on the mailinglist. Lets see what we can distill out of this and how we can take these ideas forward.

Another portal example

JCKermagoret I would be interested in working on the portal. Maybe by providing another example based on DesignPattern/ECrud ?


Need more ideas!

Hacking ideas

[HL] I'm planning to crank out some documentation. Won't do any promises as to the amount. ;-)

[BD] Depending on the outcome of the [CocoonRefDocProject] it might be good to annotate existing code and samples, and put it all together to generate useful reference docs. We'll know more about this at the end of August.
