under Tomcat, you can run multiple instances of the web app cocoon (in theory 
- didn't test it) but you might be looking for somthing like the
automount facility.
That means you all have different apps (a copy of the base app you work on)
mounted under different directories. You can each change your own app, and
when you are satisfied you could maybe merge it the normal CVS way in a
shared test app.

I personally do use my own development web server (tomcat) with my own
development version of cocoon and my own, other definitions of the datasources
used (it's in it's entirety one tarfile on NFS:). It's not really difficult, 
you get you own test logs unencumbered with
normal operations data, and you can develop on the "real" database - as far
as the web-app is concerned. And tomcat/cocoon is not really heavy, only
the startup takes some time, so working on a private copy has its advantages.

But other people undoubtedly do this differently, and I'm also quite
curious on how others do this.
