Mark's suggestion is working nicely, but I still have one (final?) problem. I can't figure out how to make Saxoutputter generate a DocType declaration. I use JDOM to add the DocType to my document, but Saxoutputter ignores it. It's hard to tell from whether  DTDHandler will provide this or whether it's even supported by Saxoutputter. It looks like it might be possible to set it using

setOutputProperties(java.util.Properties props)


I've copied alot from OREGenerator; mine still extends AbstractGenerator.

I may be able to set it in my XSLT, but I'd rather use the DOM or transformer if possible.

Ok, in this case you don't need a packager, what you need is a Cocoon
Generator that renders the Crosswalk to the browser.

Take a look at the OREGenerator...

It will show how to generate the crosswalk into Cocoon.  You'll find
the Cocoons configuration for the ore.xml generator in the default

<map:match pattern="metadata/handle/*/*/ore.xml**">
                                <map:generate type="DSpaceOREGenerator">
                                        <map:parameter name="handle"
                                        <map:parameter name="extra"
                                <map:serialize type="xml"/>
