Subject Re: New Tomcat Changes

I am not sure if we are utilizing this for Jetty...I didn't see a 
virtual-server style parameter in the geronimo-jetty.xsd.  Perhaps it is 
somewhere else...which leads me to a discussion we have had in the past...

I would very much be interested in taking the geronimo-jetty.xml and 
geronimo-tomcat.xml files and merge them as a common version, such as a 
geronimo-web.xml...and remove the jetty namespace attributes from the 
xsd.  This way both containers can surf off the same file....and reuse 
the xmlbean code. I did not see anything in the xds that was container 
specific.  If anything is container specific, the builder could ignore 
the parameter.
