Also being a Geronimo newbie, I'm sure I'm not the best to answer this, 
but what I have seen work for me (and I'm sure this is the long way) 
follows.  After making my change to the code, I do a mvn at the trunk 
level.  This will build the  changed code and any dependencies and the 
assemblies.  Then I unzip the new assembly over the old server unzipped 
directory and I can see the changes I made.
