sorry for late response: I've just returned from ApacheCon EU 2012 and I
am bit late with e-mails :-)

Anyway, you can find an example of "plain" (e.g. without RCL) webapp at
[1]: since it is a demo application of HippoCocoonToolkit (HCT) [2] - an
alternative, Apache Cocoon 3.0 based, toolkit for building web sites
while relying upon Hippo CMS and Repository - you will have to remove
any hct-related file and dependency, but it should be pretty

Please let me now if you are fine with this.
