Here is the extract from the tomcat log:

localhost.log:2004-06-25 15:15:37 HostConfig[localhost]: Expanding web application archive
localhost.log:2004-06-25 15:15:37 HostConfig[localhost] Exception while expanding web application
archive cocoon.war /usr/share/tomcat/webapps/cocoon/WEB-INF/lib/excalibur-logger-1.1.jar
(No such file or directory)

and here is the extract from a jar tf cocoon.war command:
