I can reproduce the problem, but haven't had a chance to debug.  Cocoon's
command-line processor will 'correct' the extension for the few MIME
types it knows about, and not touch the extension for MIME types it
doesn't know.  The problem is that *.java files are being served by the
sitemap (raw.xmap) with MIME type text/plain, hence the .txt extension.

I think the quick fix would be to override raw.xmap (copy from
$FORREST/context/raw.xmap to src/documentation/) and declare a matcher
for **.java, which sets the MIME type to text/plain+java or something.
The other possible solution is to extract the mime.types file from the
Cocoon jar, and comment out the text/plain entry:

[xml-forrest ~/build/dist/shbat/WEB-INF/classes]$ jar xvf
../lib/cocoon-20030622.jar org/apache/cocoon/util/mime.types

Bizarre.  Does the *.xml file link to the compressed or uncompressed
version?  If you run 'forrest run', does Jetty serve the content
compressed or uncompressed?

Ah yes, that's probably it.  If you look in sitemap.xmap, you'll see the
source matchers (**.xml, reading from content/xdocs/*.xml) are located
before the serve-raw-content matcher:

    251     <map:pipeline internal-only="false">
    253       <!-- ============================================================ -->
    254       <!-- OUTPUT FORMATS                                               -->
    255       <!--                  Serves content directly to the user         -->
    256       <!-- +==========================================================+ -->
    257       <map:match type="regexp" pattern="^.+$">
    258         <map:select type="exists">
    259           <map:when test="content/{0}">
    260             <map:mount uri-prefix="" src="raw.xmap" check-reload="yes" />
    261           </map:when>
    262         </map:select>
    263       </map:match>

Moving that block above the source matchers might help:

    130     <map:pipeline internal-only="false">


    133       <!-- ============================================================ -->
    134       <!-- SOURCE FORMATS                                               -->
    135       <!--                 Raw XML sources, typically doc-v11 format    -->
    136       <!-- ============================================================ -->
    138       <map:match pattern="changes.xml">
    139         <map:mount uri-prefix="" src="status.xmap" check-reload="yes" />
    140       </map:match>

I'll have a look tomorrow.
