Ok, thanx I will do that :)

I don't think that's entirely true, because I've got it to work with Tomcat
3.2 beta 4. If I use Tomcat as a webserver (not as a module for Apache
Server) I can connect at port 8080 and everything seems fine
(http://localhost:8080/cocoon/welcome) :). What I did was just copy the
directory webapp (renamed it to cocoon) to TOMCAT_HOME/webapps...

: You will find catalina in the jakarta-tomcat cvs under proposals.

: on catalinas home all you have to do is start catalina to see the

That seems great but, I checked Catalina already, and I did not find any
documenation, source or whatsoever that indicated that Catalina can work as
or with a module in Apache Server. Is this possible? (It's important for our
"old" pages, because then we can still use PHP and it's much faster for
static pages that way).

: The hard part about it is getting catalina to work. It took me some
: little modifications on the build.xml and stuff to get them to work all

: dificult.

Can you e-mail these modifications? Or can they be found in the mailinglist
archive? I can't check that right now, because the mailinglist archive seems
broken to me (it does not work as nice as a few days ago, when you could
search the archive).

: hope that helps,

I think it will :) Thank you.
