This is *one* way of doing things, and maybe unfortunately for you not 
the best supported by Cocoon as it stands today.

As Giacomo and others outlined, you have to realize that Cocoon is used 
and deployed in many different ways. He's talking about using custom 
Maven plugin, and at the other end of the spectrum I have some 
production systems which are started by an ant script building and 
starting the thing, almost identical to my development setup. Others 
build and deploy war files.

As you're noticing, you need more upfront investment to start with 
Cocoon than with other apparently comparable frameworks. It will be 
worth it if you need the flexibility and power, if not it might be too
