Quite frankly, I'm not sure I see the value of having multiple web 
containers simultaneously active within geronimo.  Has anyone heard of a 
  use case or user that is asking for this support?  IMHO, I suspect the 
vast majority of users will choose a single web container (at build or 
install time) and stick with it.  If future requirements dictate a 
switch to a different container, then laying down a new installation 
doesn't seem unreasonable.  In fact, Geronimo doesn't currently even 
support incremental maintenance.  I would think the use case for 
non-destructive upgrade would be much more prevalent than changing 
internal components on the fly.

While simultaneous active web containers would be a technical feat, I'm 
really not sure the overhead and added confusion to users are worth the 
payoff..  My $.02
