If you want to do basic XML production then transformation, it's
probably easier for you to write your own servlet since Cocoon gives you
much more power than that, but it's also harder to understand and
install. (not that hard, in truth, but I'm heavily biased)

But in case you want to start working with XML moving your stuff over...
well, in that case, I'd suggest you to invest a couple of hours and get
your XML publishing system up and running.

Example? Almost all Cocoon users are using Cocoon for what you need,
using custom producers or XSP pages.

Ask the Cocoon users mail list for more detailed examples.
