ok, didn't know this as the inclusion mechanism of the former spring-app block 
was different.

ok. Than I will try to use the standard Spring way:



in the cocoon-22-webapp-archetype but I guess this will not work together with 
paranoid classloading and the reloading classloader because the listener is 
declared outside of Cocoon.

                                    - o -

Apart from that I will add

<include-beans dir="context://WEB-INF/spring" pattern="*.xml/>

to the cocoon.xconf so that we can have bean definition files in blocks.
