Following our decision that projects like this ought to be able to function as standalone Cocoon-based Webapps, I've created a standalone version of the application living on the Lettuce Development Tomcat. We discussed whether this should be using Tomcat authentication, as we did for the IALLT Journal, but there are reasons to stick to the rather hokey Cocoon-based authentication we have, and in fact to improve it. If we do Tomcat-based authentication as described here, then there's a co-dependency between the roles defined in the Tomcat users file and the web app's
web.xml file. This means the project isn't actually portable at all.
All in all, it's time I properly mastered Cocoon authentication; this is an opportunity to do it.
