I am not sure whether you are aware of

I am planing to hit the incubator in a couple of days with the
httpcomponents project sponsoring the move. Droids is 100% java/spring
based, so it will be very easy to integrate it in cocoon. 

Like stated in the droids documentation I started the lab because the
CLI is gone in 2.2.. IMO the only that is missing to be a full
replacement of the former CLI is to support the whole configuration
file. This however should be very straight forward to implement.
