Cocoon has an o.a.cocoon.Environment package to act as an abstraction of 
the underlying environment.

o.a.cocoon.Main is our commandline starter, that sets up the comandline 
environment, creates, initializes it and starts crawling by 
calling the process() method on Cocoon..

Cocoon itself is the core of Cocoon, and can be used as you say.

But since to set up Cocoon correctly you have to perform some steps that 
are not so easy to remember, very recently we have been thinking of 
creating a that would make the embedded usage in Cocoon 

Basially what you need is this Bean; you can do it quite easily from, and it would be well accepted as a contribution to Cocoon :-D 
<hint hint - nudge nudge> ;-)

If you have /any/ question regarding this, feel free to ask :-)
