You could always use the MBeans and JMX as the Admin API (along with 
all the various J2EE management APIs).

Agreed. Though since we can already deploy MBeans inside Geronimo and 
have just about got web container deployment (e.g. Tomcat) inside of 
Geronimo too - it'd make sense to have a version of the Tomcat admin 
console that can add some extra Geronimo specific stuff. We're already 
ready for a management console I'd say. Developing this in parallel to 
the rest of the stack might help us keep APIs console-friendly.
