I think you mean that you want to run tomcat in a separate vm and 
access ejbs running in geronimo.  This should be possible, although you 
won't be able to use a java:comp/env context (unless tomcat has some 
kind of support for it, that I don't know about).  You would need to 
specify externally accessible jndi names in the openejb-jar deployment 
plan and supply the correct jndi properties to access the openejb 
remote naming context.

Here are some hints from the openejb itests:

jndi name element:


jndi properties:

     public void init(Properties props) {
         properties = props;

         props.put("java.naming.provider.url", "");
         props.put("", "testuser");
         props.put("", "testpassword");

I don't know enough about tomcat to guess how you would best supply 
these properties so you get the initial context you want, but supplying 
them in the constructor should work if nothing else does.
