Geronimo's restriction to run on a 1.4.2 JDK is specific, primarily, to the
ORB we are using.  It is our hope in the near future we will have an updated
ORB and we will be able to use JDK 1.5.  Perhaps the Trifork folks can chime
in on this.

For now, yes.

Please explain your question.  Currently it is pluggable (via the Gbean),
but I think I need to understand your question a little better.
