Ah!... I understand ;-)

Maven does all the 'installing' for you.  As I said, Cocoon 2.2 is very 
different from earlier versions.  Maven is the key.  If you run Maven 
from the command line as shown in the tutorial [1] it will download what 
it needs from a remote repository and build a skeletal Cocoon 2.2 
application for you.  Then you have to figure out how to split up your 
existing app into suitable blocks and fit them into the new structure.  
Following the other tutorials in sequence will help you understand how 
to connect up other blocks.

Maven is used to do most of the heavy lifting from compiling your source 
files to creating javadocs, running tests and deploying your final 
application.  It would be wise to read up on Maven a little.
