Yes, but the internal "container" is very light weight.

As much as possible is delegated. But servlet containers doesn't contain 
any mechanisms for building webapps based on plugins that can 
communicate and share components, so I don't see how we can achieve the 
goals without creating some own infrastructure. Do you have any concrete 

Otherwise the servlet service and block architecture is really non 
intrusive. As you can see

it haven't any dependencies on the rest of Cocoon, the only API, the 
user need to care about is the servlet one. Configurations is done with 

The architecture consists of a dispatcher and an own ServletContext 
implementation that allow for inter block communication and some support 

So I would say that it is very far from the "almighty Cocoon syndrome".
