Good. If you have a WAR file, then you should be done with the
Cocoon-related steps.

These issues can sometimes be complex: note that the server can't find
javax/servlet/ServletContextListener, which is a pretty intrinsic class
for a servlet container.

This is unlikely to help: Tomcat doesn't use pom.xml for anything: only
Maven and the compilation/build steps use it. If your code has complied
properly, then your pom.xml should be good to go.

Can you tell us how you installed Tomcat? Please list the libraries in
TOMCAT_HOME/lib and also (all) the libraries in your WAR file's
WEB-INF/lib directory.

It might also be a good idea to cross-post to
