Hey all,

I have not taken a look at the JMX portlet.  But, I have been working 
with dojo as a separate webapp installed into Geronimo.

I think that we should probably think about making dojo a plugin and 
then a dependency for the JMX portlet.

That way, all of the dojo related issues (what files to load and where) 
are kept separate from the porlet changes AND it sets the stage for 
other portlets to take advantage of dojo.
