I have been using dynamically generated form definitions since version 
2.1.5, so it should work. I do remember that 2.1.8 contained a bug which 
affected dynamic generation of forms, but this was fixed in 2.1.9. Can't 
find the corresponding Jira issue though.

For an example, see my (very old) schema2cocoonforms wiki page [1]
