Paloose XML Processor

A means of handling XML files in a similar fashion to Cocoon with sitemaps and XSL transforms.

More FAQs can be found on the Paloose Site..

What facilities do you intend to add to Paloose?

This is quite a difficult question as I have limited time and am not trying to do a complete Cocoon implementation in PHP5 — a pointless exercise anyway. Now that I have added a simple (limited) data caching scheme to the pipeline all of what I intended to add is complete. I am gradually refining the code and improving the documentation and comments. I am happy to look at anything that users suggest — just EMAIL me at hsfr@hsfr.org.uk.

Can I use the Paloose logo on my site?

Yes please. I suggest the following "Powered by Paloose" logo or the "Powered by Paloose (small)" small logo. Scale it as you feel fit.

What systems will it run on?

Basically any system that will run PHP5. Currently the list is Mac OS-X, Linux, and other similar Unix systems. I also know of a system based on Apache 2.0/PHP5 on Windows Server 2003.

How can I improve the performance of Paloose?

Assuming that you are already using the caching system and want more speed, it is possible, but at the expense of a little effort (and possible obscurity), to tailor the Paloose code and your own sitemaps and XSL. The implications and method are described here in more detail.

What about caching in Paloose?

I have done considerable work on various ways of caching within Paloose and versions after 1.3.0 use pipeline data caching on certain generators and transformers. I confess that I am in a quandry over this as the gains from using a cache seem to be minimal and not really worth the effort except in some key cases — see my caching discussion for more on this. It is not the end of the story, but more performance increases will probably come from elsewhere.

Help! Why am I getting "Class 'XsltProcessor' not found" errors

99% of the time this shows that you are running PHP5 without the XML/XSL support that there should be. Try recompiling PHP5 with the following configuration parameters included:

--with-xml --with-libxml-dir=<dir path> --with-xsl

Help! Why am I getting "Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '=', expecting '(' in

/../../paloose/lib/Paloose.php on line xx" errors

This means you are still running PHP4. You need to run PHP5. Speak to your ISP to provide PHP5. The other reason may be that your .htaccess file has not been set properly to use PHP5.
