Subject Re: [issues] Created: (FOR-133) Cocoon.xconf is misconfigured in WAR

This brakes the war when installed in a servlet container. Manually editing cocoon.xconf after
installing the war fixes the issue.

This was broken by a recent commit that prevents cocoon-live.xconf from 
being configured and replacing cocoon.xconf when building the war. This 
was pointed out on the list but the change was never reverted (and I'm 
afraid I have not had the time to download and configure SVN so I'm 
unable to do this).

If you uncomment the lines in the webapp target that copy 
cocoon-live.xconf into the webapp directory it should work.

You are right the need for cocoon-live.xconf should be removed by this 
work. But I don't know if Nikola Ken has tested this, I don't think this 
is one of his use cases. Perhaps you could test it for us?
