You are using old tool with the new libraries.

'Old' here is JDK 1.3.1 or earlier, 'tool' is tools.jar (or javac.jar),
'new libraries' is rt.jar from JDK 1.4.

Correct the error (use either older JDK or newer javac) and try again.

PS javac.jar is located in the cocoon.war/WEB-INF/lib in the webapp, or
in xml-cocoon/lib/ in source distribution.
