CocoonPortlet is the implementation of the JSR168 Portlet 
(javax.portlet.Portlet) and it provides a way to deploy Cocoon 
application in the JSR168 container. AFAIK, WebLogic Portal and Plumtree 
Portal both have implementations of this JSR. And Pluto is an open 
source implementation of this JSR.

Coplet is a component which can be deployed into the Cocoon Portal, 
which is separate thing.

So, depending on what do you want to do -- enable Cocoon app to be 
deployed in 3rd party portal, or to build own portal on top of Cocoon, 
you'll choose one or another (or even both in some weird case).
