Hi Peter,

Well, I'm just investigating the current status of Geronimo JSR88 
support as I'm developing a NetBeans serverplugins module. NetBeans IDE 
already comes with several app servers and I decided to add Geronimo as 
well. I couldn't long settle on which Rich Client Platform to pick up to 
develop the module and after some rather general evaluation I decided to 
go with NetBeans RCP. I must admit I very liked the announcement that 
Eclipse has its own Geronimo plugin, too.

As far as I understand Geronimo JSR88 support, there're some parts of 
JSR88 which aren't yet available. Most of the operations throws 
Unsupported operation or something alike. I'm going to start a thread 
about how much impact it might have on the current certification work so 
I'm happy I'm not alone who's interested in it :)

As far as the NetBeans module (NBM) is concerned, it's not yet announced 
here (and actually anywhere else but NetBeans nbj2ee mailing list) as I 
don't actually know when it is going to be finished. At the moment, the 
module adds a Geronimo instance (downloaded or built from sources), once 
started up (it's mocked up at the moment to make sure I'm not distracted 
with Geronimo itself) it prints out available configurations, sets up 
one as default to be started up the next time. The last piece of the 
puzzle is to have modules deployed using DeploymentManager. I'm not yet 
using Geronimo's JMXDeploymentManager due to some class libraries 
constraints on my part. That's why I can't say exactly what's missing.

Well, it's great you've asked about it - I should've written about it 
long ago, esp. having noticed Eclipse WDT support for Geronimo. It looks 
there're two IDEs which are heading towards the same goal, so sooner or 
later Geronimo DeploymentManager will surely be complete. Stay tuned.
