I disagree. Cocoon is definitely entering the content management scenario, even if it was
not its original target.

If all Cocoon did was separation of Content from Logic from Presentation, I would not use
it, but rather a combination of Enterprise Javabeans, XML-generating Java server pages and
an XSLT engine (probably built as a module on the web server). 
Other solutions exist, most showing this separation into "business logic", "application logic"
and "presentation". All show the same problem: They are not fully adapted to the domain of
web applications. One can easily imagine writing the same patterns over and over without any
possible means of reduction.
