the modified class(es) need to get into  the proper jar and that jar  
be copied into the appropriate place in the geronimo repository.   
Then all geronimo plugins/modules that depend on that jar need to be  
restarted.  For geronimo-system, you need to restart the server.  For  
something like geronimo-jetty6, you'd restart jetty and all the web
