Tim had mentioned to me that he was working on an Axis2 patch. I'm  
sure he'll let us know where he stands with this work.

You could try removing the <moduleId> of your geronimo deployment  
plan. That should allow redeployment to at least work... The undeploy  
part will be slow (as it tries to delete the jar files), but deploy  
should create a new unique default/<archive-name>/<random-number/war  
module. So, should at least "work". Certainly, still a "headache",  
will let you decide how it compares to your current *headache*. You'll  
eventually run out of PERMGEN space... Your repository directory will  
fill up with default/<archive-name> directories, also

There's always the option of deploying your Axis2 libraries separately  
and declaring a dependency in your web app deployment plan... This  
should work perfectly (except your changing the contents of your WAR  
file, and not just defining a geronimo deployment plan). Hmm.  
Actually, could you leave your WAR contents unchanged and still use  
this technique?
