Yes I know, but I'm looking for a solution that can be integrated in
Apache Server. And at the moment (I believe) the only two solutions are
Jserv and Tomcat. They both work, except Jserv doesn't work anymore with
the 2.x series. That's not a problem, but I only wanted to know that. :)
It's for the company I work for (uhh i'm a trainee... :p) important that
they can keep using Apache Server. Not only because they have a lot of
time invested in PHP (which can also run on other webservers, I know)
but also because Apache Webserver is one of the best webservers at the
moment, and is a great open source project.

Oops, there goes my statement that Jserv and Tomcat the only solutions
are for Apache :P. But, the Apache community has always produced good
products. And because of the fact Apache Server and Tomcat are both
Apache projects, it looks to me they will better work together (maybe
not at the moment, but in the future), but I know that does not have to
be true... And ofcourse, I can always switch, that does nothing to the
functionality of Cocoon ofcourse.... Hmmm :) Still thinking.... :P

I will have a look at it :) Thank you for the information!
