OK. We're getting urged to finalize our agenda. In the spirit of  
Donald's mashup. How does the following work for everyone?

Session 1: Apache Geronimo 2.2
Speakers: David Jencks and Vamsavardhana Reddy Chillakuru

This talk will provide an overview of the Geronimo 2.2 release. Along  
with providing an overview of the new features found in 2.2, the talk  
will also discuss Geronimo Custom Assemblies and Application Security.  
Geronimo makes it easy to assemble a custom server around your  
applications, including only those features needed to run your apps.  
We'll see how to use maven to integrate this into your build process.  
Also, Apache Geronimo enables storing user credentials in a variety of  
data stores viz., simple text files, a database, an LDAP server and  
digital certificates. In this session we see how these data stores can  
be used to configure application security and how the necessary  
infrastructure can be run in Apache Geronimo itself.


Session 2: OSGi Blueprint Container Specification and Geronimo
Speaker: Jarek Gawor

This talk will provide a general overview of the Blueprint Container  
Specification and demonstrate some of its core features using  
Geronimo's Blueprint Container implementation. The talk will also  
describe some more advanced features of the Geronimo implementation  
such as Configuration Admin Service support and custom namespace  
handlers. Future plans will be discussed as well as how the Blueprint  
Container might be used and integrated within the existing Geronimo  


Session 3: Apache Geronimo 3.0: OSGi and Java EE6
Speakers: David Jencks and Donald Woods

This talk will provide a preview of the new features in Apache  
Geronimo 3.0. Including the OSGi support with the Geronimo kernel.  
We'll also discuss the new Java EE 6 features: Web Profiles, JPA 2.0,  
Servlet 3.0, EJB 3.1, etc. We'll also include demonstration of current  
functionality and discuss development outlook.
