Sounds like it - yes.

The question is: how/when is the instrumentation done? (remember:
there no longer is a marker interface and no classloader doing the

When I was demoing the javaflow and jci integration in Amsterdam
(years ago) that was with 2.2 IIRC. Let me describe how that worked:

In the sitemap I pointed jci to the eclipse output folder. Whenever a
class changed the reloading classloader reloaded the class AND
instrumented the class! So the RCL was not just for class reloading
but also for javaflow reloading and instrumentation!
For the final deployment you would use the ant task to build a jar and
instrument it during the build

So there are a couple of options:

1. use the existing ant task within the build with the maven ant task plugin
2. configure/change/fix the cocoon reloading to also support
instrumentation (or does it already?)
3. write a quick maven plugin to do the instrumentation after compilation
4. finish the final goal of to replace the maven compiler plugin with
a maven jci plugin (that also supports compile time instrumentation)

That is also in the reverse order of complexity/time to spend.
