All:
I tried one examples from O'Reilly Chapter 9 - http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/javaxml/chapter/ch09.xml (Examples 9-1 and 9-2) by creatint the ChapterOne.xml and <<associated file>>.xsl files. This is supposed to convert the XML to a PDF file. However, when I open ChapterOne.xml using the browser, I get only one line
type="text/xslfo"
What is wrong? I have no clue. Can anyone help me?

Thanks for the link. I am using Cocoon 1.8.2 but I still couldn't get it working. I think I have something wrong in the setup. I followed the Cocoon instructions but could not find out what is wrong.
My cocoon directory is c:\cocoon and my build directory with all the cocoon classes are in C:\Cocoon\build directory.
I have created a cocoon directory under c:\tomcat\webapps and have copied the necessary .jar files from c:\cocoon\lib to c:\tomcat\lib and also copied the samples directory from c:\cocoon to c:\tomcat\samples.
Besides these, is there anything else I should do? Any specific settings in web.xml under c:\tomcat\webapps\cocoon\web-inf?
Any suggestions?

Hi Viji,
Are you able to see Cocoon.xml in your browser? This indicates that your cocoon setup is ok.
Displaying ChapterOne.xml is a separate problem. The file shold display correctly in Netscape but in IE there is non standard implementation. I made a change to web.xml file that you mentioned. I added a line near the end something like <urlpattern>*.pdf</urlpattern> just like the *.xml line. This tells tomcat to use cocoon to display .pdf files. Change the name of the ChapterOne.xml file to ChapterOne.pdf
Hopefully your pdf should display ok.

I reinstalled cocoon 1.8.2 and made the necessary changes to server.xml, web.xml etc. but still I get the error "Publishing engine could not be initialized".
If any of you had the same problem and found a way to correct this error, please let me know how you corrected the problem.

Hi Viji
I'm using cocoon 1.8 and I didn't get this problem. There is a faq at http://xml.apache.org/cocoon/faqs.html which includes your problem.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
