Or fix the Cocoon model ;-)
I don't like the way Cocoon is currently running as a Servlet, and I don't
like the fact that if I use Phoenix I cannot easily use Tomcat instead.

IMO you are right, we need a way of running our server apps on Phoenix or on
Cocoon has this need too; sometimes I really wish I had only Phoenix, but
when a customer is using a J2EE container, you cannot just make him change
it all.

Peter Donald, do you have any idea on how this can be done in practice?
What I basically want is converter .sar -> .war.

Maybe an ant task that puts phoenix+the .sar in a .war?
