The reason is that you can refer to a SOAP server which is mapped on
the same server as the client. E.g. the client is at /client/soap and
the server is at /server/soap.

I believe the correct approach would be to detect the fact Cocoon is
not running in the servlet environment, thus 'context' makes no
sense. In this case the URL is created as you suggest:

  if (running in servlet context)
    this.url = new URL(context, url);
    this.url = new URL(url);

Does this make any sense?
