I disagree.  If you are building something to be included in  
geronimo, then o.a.g.configs would be the appropriate groupId.   
However I think that the console dbwizard will mostly be used by  
other organizations to generate configs for their projects.  So the  
groupId should really by the groupId for their project.

What I'd like to see is a place to set an installation default  
groupId so if your project is then all deployments where  
you don't explicitly set the groupId come out with groupId, whether you start from the command line, the console  
deployer, or one of the wizards.

An installation default version would also be good.  At some point we  
might want to consider an autoincrementing versioning scheme where if  
you redeploy something you automatically get a slightly higher  
version number and the old is undeployed after the new is verified to  
work.  This ought to make rolling back mistakes easier.

Previously I assumed we needed version ranges to deal with this but  
it occurs to  me that the artifact_aliases file could provide more  
precise control over exactly which version is used.  e.g. you'd map  
version 1.2 to 1.2-1, then 1.2-2, etc, where the -x is added by the  

  A lot of this is for the future, but it might not be too hard to  
add a way to set the installation default groupId and version.  A  
simple gbean might do.
