Couldn't be much different. Type cocoon cli -x cli.xconf and off it goes.

That bind exception is due to HSQLDB, not tomcat, so you should be able 
to ignore that error.

Yes (I think). Try ignoring the error.

It isn't yet. In time it will probably go that way. However, you could 
call the CLI from a cron job (if you're running unix), so that the site 
is regenerated for example every night.
