0.4 is 5-6 months old.  Adding XSP capabilities involves recompiling
Cocoon, so to do it properly, you'd have to use a 5-6 month old version
of Cocoon.  If it were me, I'd use CVS Forrest (pretty stable) and CVS
Cocoon, which is very close to a 2.1 final release.

Did you set the java.endorsed.dirs property?  When you ran 'forrest
webapp', it would have printed a message like this:

  If using JDK 1.4 or above, make sure to set the Java environment variable
  Eg, in the TOMCAT_OPTS (3.3.x) or CATALINA_OPTS (4.x) env variable.
