Subject Re: Cocoon Installation problems on SunOS

I appreciate the input.  In the meantime, rather than hacking around with
all sorts of combinations, we are trying to locate and use another server
(running Linux, which seems not to have these sorts of problems).
PS Do you know of any detailed comparison of Tomcat vs Jetty, 
especially for configuring and running under Apache?

Uh... this is from two years ago, I don't remember how I solved it.

Now we are running Cocoon 2.1.10 on the bundled Jetty 4.2.23 (which
I recommend over Tomcat, by the way) with MySQL Connector 5.0.6 on the
same old server and everything works well.

But we did run on Tomcat for a while, so I'm sure that problem was
solved, maybe by upgrading Tomcat, Cocoon, the MySQL connector, or
by fixing the classpath...
