Subject RE: Something else about Cocoon-2/Tomcat-4.1.18

You can try something like, for example,
"%CATALINA_HOME%\bin\tomcat.exe" -install "MyCocoon"
"%JAVA_HOME%\bin\hotspot\jvm.dll" -Djava.class.path="%JAVACLASSPATH%"
-Dcatalina.home="%CATALINA_HOME%" -Xrs -start
org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap -params start -stop
org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap -params stop -out
"%CATALINA_HOME%\logs\stdout.log" -err "%CATALINA_HOME%\logs\stderr.log" 
to register your cocoon app as a win service. Make sure you set up those
variables correctly, This way you can specify your classpath explicitly I
guess this might help when the service starts up, it will pick up the
correct xerces first.
I am only using tomcat 4.0.1 so not sure if it is the same for your tomcat
but hopefully this will give you a lead to continue.

Subject: Something else about Cocoon-2/Tomcat-4.1.18 

Another lead for those struggling to setup Cocoon with Tomcat:
1.  Like several other users, I have been served the following error when
using Cocoon-2 (Win2000/XP, Tomcat 4 JDK1.4.1_01):
The output format must have a'{}content-handler
<}content-handler> ' property!
2.  As others have advised on the cocoon-users list, this problem arises
when cocoon is provided with incompatible versions of the Xerces, Xalan or
XML-APIS libraries.  This is resolved by copying the following libraries
(versions correct for coccon-2.1-dev) from %COCOON_HOME%/lib/endorsed/ to
3.  This solution works for me when I start Tomcat using startup.bat but
*not* when I startup Tomcat as a *service*.  I discovered this after reading
the following paragraph:
> The docs at one point only mentioned %JAVA_HOME%\jre\lib\endorsed
> but later tomcat versions use -Djava.endorsed.dirs to override
> the standard jdk defined location.

I have tried using this parameter
(-Djava.endorsed.dirs=%CATALINA_HOME%/common/endorsed) as a startup
parameter, possibly incorrectly, for the service (via the WindowsXP Service
Properties pane) but this does not seem to help.  If I figure out how to do
this I will post instructions.  In the meantime, perhaps someone else knows
the answer.
