 OK, I tried following the "Don't worry - this is really easy if you
follow the instructions in the INSTALL.txt file"  (see below) process to
build the latest version of Cocoon on Windows XP.  However, when I get
to step three below, I don't know where to execute the "build" command
from.  I tried from the cocoon directory, but just get an unrecognized
command error.  What do I need to do to build Cocoon?

Thanks,
Jeff

1) Unpack the distribution

Obviously you've done this already, but if you got errors when
unpacking
the archive with tar, you might need to use gnutar instead. Our
archives
contain long paths and filenames which cause problems with some
versions
of the tar command.

You have to set your JAVA_HOME environment to point to the root
directory of
the Java Virtual Machine (JDK 1.3.x or later) installed on your
machine.

To do this simply type:

[unix] JAVA_HOME=/path/to/java/
[win32] SET JAVA_HOME=c:\path\to\java

your mileage may vary depending on your shell, but you know how to
setup
environments, right?

If you're using JDK 1.3.x, you have to exclude the JCR block before
building
Cocoon. Have a look at the "Choosing the blocks" section below on how
to
exculude a block. Please note that some samples require JDK 1.4 or
above.

3) Build Cocoon by typing "build" or "./build.sh"
