Thanks for your interest, I really hope this small application might serve
the needs of the cocoon community.

If you think the application might suit your needs, I'll gladly post the
source to bugzilla. To try it out:

For execute:
1) put the jar in $COCOON_HOME
2) backup your ;)
3) java -jar cbuilder-0.1-idea.jar

this work only on BRANCH_2_1_X version, if you have an older version,
execute it with 'java -cp lib/endorsed/x*.jar

I'm waiting for your hints or opinion.
