OK, that would be great!

Not at all, I'm used to that :)
Having read some books about website concepts, I know that there are
innumberable pitfalls.

At the moment, it's up to the publication to integrate Cocoon-based
DB support. You can use any generator that you want. What we might do
is implement an example. But I'm afraid that has a quite low priority.

So let's hope you'll come to this conclusion - I'll do my best ... :)

This is the most frequently reported error.
Usually, if you enter an absolute path for install.dir in
build.properties, this shouldn't happen. The entity resolver
is configured in cocoon.xconf which is patched by cocoon-xconf.xsl.

BTW, is someone familiar with the xpatch task used by Cocoon?
Could it somehow improve the situation?

OK, I'm looking forward to further comments and suggestions.
