Does Cocoon ship with servlet_2_2.jar inside its WEB-INF/lib
directory?  If so, that seems like a bad idea, because it would cause
class loading conflicts in the container.  In general, you should rely on
the container's installed version of the servlet API classes for whatever
container you run on.

The 2.3 (Proposed Final Draft) version of the Servlet Spec requires
2.3-compatible containers (like Tomcat 4.0) to support programs built
against the 2.2 API classes in a backwards compatible fashion.  Right now,
Struts is only dependent upon 2.2 APIs, so it will run on current and
future containers.
