My fault, I think my local CVS was screwed up. No Ant.jar in it, and I had a old
ant.jar in my extension lib, so I started from scratch!!! Works!!

I know it is not the Cocoon project that screwed up, it is W3C who are not
distinct in their recommendation, and other people (incl. Sun) unable to have
some foresight.
The so called Java-Bindings should be packaged as a binary JAR as well, which
should be included separately from the applications that are using them. The
situation is absolutely horrendous, and definately against the naming and
deployment recommendations from Sun.
Not only does these interface show up every here and there, but the W3C
completely ignores the fact that interfaces DO NOT change over time. They are
either extended OR placed in different packages. And this is the real culprit of
the dom and sax bindings.
Anyone on this list has some influence to straighten this up.

chmod +x
is required, unless one want to start by
sh which is a real drag...

I have also attached a more advanced script that will make an attemp to find a
JDK if JAVA_HOME is not set. The directories to look in should perhaps be
evaluated by a query among Linux users of where they place the JDK. I have just
made some qualified guesses.
Unfortunately I don't have the knowledge of how to do this on a Windows system
(if it is at all possible), sorry...
