While working with Cocoon, I have come upon some useful patterns for use in the sitemap. Feel free to change/tweak these as needed. -- TonyCollen

Match/Generate/Transform/Serialize

<map:match pattern="*.html">
    <map:generate src="documents/{1}.xml"/>
    <map:transform src="stylesheets/docbook2html.xsl"/>
    <map:serialize type="xhtml"/>
</map:match>

Recursive Match/Generate/Transform/Serialize

<map:match pattern="**/*.html">
    <map:generate src="documents/{1}/{2}.xml"/>
    <map:transform src="stylesheets/docbook2site.xsl"/>
    <map:serialize type="html"/>
</map:match>

Redirect "empty" requests to a known URI

<map:match pattern="">
    <map:redirect-to uri="welcome"/>
</map:match>

Sub-Sitemap Automounting

<map:match pattern="*/**">
    <map:mount check-reload="yes" src="{1}/" uri-prefix="{1}"/>
</map:match>   

Dynamic Mounting -- AndreasHartmann

<map:match pattern="*/**-info.html">
  <map:act type="resource-exists" src="{1}/info.xmap">
    <map:mount src="{1}/info.xmap" uri-prefix="{1}"/>
  </map:act>
</map:match>

Fallback Transformation -- AndreasHartmann

<map:match pattern="**/*.html"
  <map:generate src="content/{1}/{2}.xml"/>
  <map:select type="resource-exists">
    <map:when test="xslt/{1}/document2page.xsl">
      <map:transform src="xslt/{1}/document2page.xsl"/>
    </map:when>
    <map:otherwise>
      <map:transform src="xslt/document2page.xml"/>
    </map:otherwise>
  </map:select>
  <map:serialize/>
</map:match>

DirectoryGenerator and C!IncludeTransformer

<!-- overview page -->
<!-- pattern="{area}/{doctype}/{document-id}.html" -->
<map:match pattern="*/overview.html">
  <map:generate type="directory" src="content/{1}">
    <map:parameter name="sort" value="date"/>
  </map:generate>
  <map:transform src="xslt/directory2include.xsl"/>
  <map:transform type="cinclude"/>
  <map:transform src="xslt/overview/include2html.xsl"/>
  <map:serialize/>
</map:match>
