Depends on your perspective.

I think the core pipeline model in Cocoon is really simple to 
understand. It's got a clear separation of functionality/responsibility.

If you're a Java developer then maybe JSP/Servlets are easier 
because that's what you're familiar with. 

However if you're interested in processing XML documents, 
using XSLT, then the core model is pretty easy to get to grips 
with.

Ditto if you're primarily a database developer and want to publish 
some XML data. Learning the ESQL tag library isn't that hard, 
as most of the code is hidden -- there's just the SQL to deal with.

It's getting across the simplicity at the heart of Cocoon that's 
the road to success -- clear examples and documentation are 
the way to do this.

Another one is to avoid making the sitemap any more complex than 
it needs to be.

Cheers,

L.
