I tried to deploy my application (based on cocoon in both: 
tomcat 5.0.27 and 5.5.0. Both did not work because of a conflict between 
  my commons-logging-1.0.3.jar and tomcat's commons-logging-api.jar (I 
posted this yesterday... still found no solution :-{).

me too. not the best idea apparently (although it would be really nice 
to speed up my cocoon on a 64bit box with the new jdk... *dreams*

It is not.
There is a compatibility package available for download at the apache 
binary download site. overwrite the files in your tomcat 5.5 directory 
by the files in this archive and it should work with jdk 1.4.2_x (works 
fine on my linux box).

I had no problems with building (but i built my cocoon on a 
windows machine in cygwin with jdk 1.4.2_03-b02
