Geronimo 2.1 Enhancements
Custom server assemblies
- Lightweight server assemblies may be created that contain only the functional
components required by your application(s).
Flexible admin console
- The admin console is now component-based to mirror the server capabilities.
This allows the admin console to provide flexible administrative capabilities
that will mirrors the capabilities of a custom server assembly.
- GShell is a command-line processing environment that can be used for the execution
of Geronimo commands. GShell is an extensible environment and includes support
for editing, command history, and tab completion.
- WADI can now be used to support clustering of web applications for Geronimo configurations
which use the Tomcat Web Container (WADI support for Jetty was in previous releases).
- Applications can be deployed to administratively-defined groups of Geronimo servers
Monitoring Console Plugin
- The monitoring console plugin provides monitoring support in the Geronimo admin console.
The monitoring console can gather statistics and performance data from multiple Geronimo
servers and graphically display this data to users.
Plan Creator (added in Geronimo 2.1.2)
- Plan Creator is a new portlet added to administration console to simplify the creation of
Geronimo specific deployment plans. Given a web application archive (war), Plan Creator walks
the user through a sequence of steps and generates geronimo-web.xml automatically.

Certification Test Suite. See "Distributions" for further details.
Apache Geronimo v2.1.x is available in five distributions so you can pick the
one that best fits your environment.
The available distributions are as follows:
- Apache Geronimo with Tomcat web container, AXIS2 for Web Services and OpenJPA
