Make sure to take a look at, 
especially the /publisher/documentPage method. With a request parameter 
includeNavigation=true|false, you can decide to include the navigation 
tree (or not).

Authentication on the HTTP/XML back-end is required and should be done 
using BASIC authentication - which is rather trivial using httpclient, 
but I'm not sure how that could be achieved easily from a plain Cocoon 
pipeline (which is what the current plugin does IIUC).

The easiest way to connect to the repo from a Java environment is the 
Java API, of course, which is trivial to wrap in a flow script.
