@roamy: If you can write a cocoa app - connect it to a database - dynamically retrieve data from user input and display a webpage in xml

Hi, roamy. I'm still a little unclear on the details, but let me try to answer this in a more general way. The Cocoa desktop API is really tuned for desktop applications, and doesn't have a lot of the design decisions in place that would be good for backing a high-traffic site.

WebObjects is the closest to what you're describing, but it's based on Java now. There's nothing to prevent a third party from writing a service that sits in front of a desktop Cocoa app, but it's not clear if this would really be a good approach when there are so many other frameworks specifically designed for web apps.
