[opencms-dev] XML or JSP Template mechanism?

you can also export JSP based pages just like pages bsed on
XMLTemplates. Just set the "export" property for the files / folders. If
you create a JSP, it will have automatically set "export" to "false".
Just change this to "true" and here you go...

I should add that the documentation about the export is rather thin as
of today, and the current implementation has room for improvement.
Hopefully we at Alkacon will be able to attend this later this year. If
someone else wants to volunteer in writing documentation or even
re-writing the exort code, please step forwared now. Beware: Getting the
docs and/or the code right will require a considerable amount of time.
