I don't know if it is incomplete or out of sync with Xalan.
To avoid problems use the jars bundled with Cocoon first.

There is a long thread out the LDAP processor running.

If you don't intend to use it just comment it out in the
and forget about jndi.jar

it should look like this:
#processor.type.ldap = org.apache.cocoon.processor.ldap.LdapProcessor

If you need it then you should go the the sun java web site to get the
missing pieces.
(I don't know the exact address, but it should be rather easy to find)

I really think the LDAP processor should be commented out by default
to avoid all these problems people are having setting up Cocoon...

just my 2cents.
