Well, I like the idea of deploying them inside of Cocoon. I'm not sure 
why the Portlet spec says they should be web apps.

But I have good news.  I was able to get a portlet to work with the 
portlet deployed as a war file and I didn't have to change any code.  I 
simply put the pluto and portlet-api jars in Tomcat's common/lib 
directory instead of shared/lib and that got rid of the 
ClassNotFoundException.  I guess there is either a bug in Tomcat or I am 
not reading their documentation properly.
