I don't remember what the error was, but I never did manage to get the 
HSQLDB examples to work before, but I didn't worry too much about it 
because I needed to get JDBC working anyway.

Anyway, I finally got the newer version to install and copied all the 
files I'd changed into it, and now it's WORKING! Both the HSQLDB 
examples and the MySQL example. So it must have been the JDK 1.3 
version I'd been using. Good call.

Now that I've got both versions here, I don't see any way to tell the 
two apart by inspecting the .jar files in WEB-INF/lib. It might be a 
good idea to write up a FAQ and make the two lib versions available for 
download. It would sure be easier to replace the lib directory than try 
to reinstall Cocoon. That was a real pain!

Thanks very much for your help, and Scott too. You've been very helpful.
