Looks like the init fails trying to find the conf file. I've downloaded
cocoon 1.7.3 today and I'm having a similar problem after moving from 1.7.2.

Although the path is correct in the web.xml file, cocoon is throwing:

    at org.apache.cocoon.Cocoon.init(

When I examine Tomcat's logs: OSErr: -50
    at org.apache.tomcat.core.Context.getResource(
    at org.apache.cocoon.Cocoon.init(

However, Turbine still finds and loads it's confs. I don't get it.

SERVER INFO: Tomcat Web Server/3.1 Beta (JSP 1.1; Servlet 2.2; Java 1.1.8;
Mac OS 9.4 PowerPC; java.vendor=Apple Computer, Inc.)

Perhaps a Servlet 2.2 problem in my case?

Usually I work on a Unix setup (Apache, Jserv 1.x, etc) so I'm not entirely
certain it's not related to my setup of tomcat???
