the main issue is, if you need the dynamic features of Cocoon.The CLI 
can obviously only generate the statical aspects. if you make database 
queries, or XSP queries with post form actions and the like it is hardly 
possible to make a statical website out of it.

If you use Cocoon to access various sources like XML and databases, but 
the result is mainly "statical" you can use any webspider to generate an 
offline version out of it and serve this from CD Rom.

But as you wrote of Delphi and the like, I assume you need dynamic 
actions and then a running Cocoon instance would be required. To repeat 
from the beginning: I think you definitly would need some installation 
procedure that installs a JVM and tomcat/cocoon locally... and I doubt 
that this is very practical for a CD Rom presentation.
