I am having a similar problem with

- Win2k server
- Java 1.4.2_07
- Tomcat 5.5.9

I generated "forrest webapp" and configured a new tomcat an <Context> for Forrest.

I get an Exception similar to the first post. A series of ClassNotFoundException exceptions.

I managed to sort of fix the problem copying

 logkit-1.2.2.jar and commons-logging-1.0.4.jar



Now, I get the following error

Message: null

Description: No details available.

Sender: org.apache.cocoon.servlet.CocoonServlet

Source: Cocoon Servlet

Request URI



C:\usr\sbin\apache-forrest-0.7\site-author\build\webapp\project\.\skinconf.xml (The system
cannot find the file specified)




There is no much information in the log files.

Tried to copy skinconf where requested and I get a "java.lang.NullPointerException" as a Tomcat
server error cause.

And many other failed attempts.

Please help!!!
