Cocoon 3.0 is a full rewrite of Cocoon by the people with experience from the earlier versions. It is designed to meet the demands of modern web applications. This means:
- Cocoon 3.0 aims to become the best platform for RESTful services
- You can use Pipelines without being tied to the Servlet API
- It is easier to integrate your own Java code into a pipeline
- Superfluous packages are cut out of the platform
A more detailed post on the changes planned for Cocoon 3.0 is written by Reinhard Pötz, one of the driving forces behind the new Cocoon version.
