Ok, that's what i'm trying to explain, but the problem is that the first
lines of the firt page of C2 doc says :

  What is this? 

  Apache Cocoon is an XML publishing framework 

After I've read docs and made some trying, I no longer agree with this.
Cocoon (C2) is Web application AND publishing framework.
Since the question was "we need a detailed comparison with Struts", I think
it's imporant in this comparison to make it clear that Cocoon is not "just"
a publishing framework. If this was made clear in Cocoon docs, Cocoon would
allready have been choosed for the project i'm working on.
