Not specific on coplets, but,

a submit button is embedded in a form. The form has an action target. 
This target should point to
a sitemap component (pipeline). If you're in the pipeline, it's up to 
you to generate your
XML using a generator, extracting information from the request.

As I hear this, it looks like an action which is not matched by a 
pipeline component. You
could look at the HTML sources in your browser to see where you are 
submitting to. If
that's the same action as the URL, the you *could* try method="get" in 
your form. Then
the plain URL is reproduced.

Using method="GET"during development is IMHO not that bad anyway, as you 
have more
information readily at hand.

Sorry I can't say more, but doesn't work is not really abundant 
information:) Do sitemap.log or
access.log (cocoon/WEB-INF/logs) or localhost-[date].log (tomcat/logs) 
say anything?
