You can run Cocoon in command line and tell it to process your XML pages and 
output the result in a different page:

java org.apache.cocoon.Cocoon -p <properties file> file.xml file.html

(Be aware that you need to apply a small patch to Cocoon 1.7.2 to have it run
correctly in the command line. I posted the patch on this mailing list a few
days ago.)

Another solution which is useful in case you produce output based on the user
agent is to use some tool like cURL ( which allows you to

specified the user agent to be presented to the Web server.
