I didnĀ“t need to do step (6) with Cocoon 2.1..  It as already done.

Be careful to remove other jars that have not quite the same name but 
contain the same packages. (For example, in 2.1
there's a file called xmldb-api-20011111.jar  which should be replaced

port. It seems that every Xindice release or beta
runs on a different port!

system.xml in the webapp and system.xml in the command line version, if 
you want
both to use the same database.
