Thank you for your answer.
This didn't help, but it gave me the idea how to solve this problem: I
simply compied servlet.jar from Catalina into the Cocoons WEB-INF/lib
directory and it worked.

Is that a correct Cocoon param (extra-classpath)? Why didn't it work? Any

So, I can conclude, that to install Cocoon2 with Tomcat 4.0b-1 we will need

1. Remove crimson.jar and maybe jaxp.jar from %CATALINA_HOME%\lib

2. Enable Cocoon to find the servlet.jar either by coping it from Catalina
into Cocoon's WEB-INF\lib or adding additional init-param to Cocoon's
web.xml (it didn't work in my case):
        <!-- change param value to path to Catalina's servlet.jar -->
