The cocoon.xconf example on this page:

The cocoon.xconf in ${cocoon}/WEB-INF/ is quite a bit different than in 
the documentation just referenced. It uses tags like:
   <xml-parser class="org.apache.avalon.excalibur.xml.JaxpParser" 
instead of:
   <component role="org.apache.cocoon.components.parser.Parser"
which is in the documentation.

You shed light on this below... I guess it's just my ignorance of Avalon 
configurations, and I've already started reading the Avalon docs and 
source and, however the differences between the docs and 
distribution confused me a bit.

Thanks a lot for your help.
