I worked on the deployer for monolithic Cocoon apps. I haven't finished it yet 
but most of the work has already been done. If somebody has some time over the 
next few days, don't hesistate to jump in. Here some pointers to get started:

As starting point look at

which contains extraction rules for JARs. It would be fine, if somebody, who 
knows the exact target structure, can extend this test case.

At least a description which files from META-INF/legacy/** are expected under 
WEB-INF would be very helpful.

We also need a decision where we put the files that are located under /COB-INF. 
I would propose [webapp-root]/block-apps/[block-name]. Comments?

If somebody has time to finish it (I can't promise that I have enough time to do 
it myself till next weekend) or continue my work, please let me know so that we 
don't duplicate our work .
