Might I suggest that you switch to the xsp sql taglib instead of the sql
processor? not all functionality is there yet, but it's quite simple to do
what you're asking:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<?cocoon-process type="sql"?>
<?xml-stylesheet href="..."?>
<?cocoon-process type="xslt"?>
   <sql:query>select icc from icc_search where id = &apos;<request:get-parameter

Note I've never played with WML before, so I don't know that information
submitted from a WML form ends up in an HttpServletRequest or not - I
reckon so, but if not, then you must put in special java code (or write a
utility class and a namespace taglib) to get the parameter in place of the
request:get-parameter element.

Oh, final note, you must be using cocoon from CVS or whatever stefano just
released for this to work - i had some trouble making text and elements
mixed together work properly until ricardo straightened me out.
