Spring is not "moving away from Enterprise Java Beans".  That is a huge 
misnomer.  Spring embraces J2EE, including EJBs as it has a complete API 
to do so.  Spring is an API that is very useful and helpful to 
developers throughout the J2EE arena and beyond.  So Spring can and 
should be used with Geronimo, definately not as a replacement.
