Easy management of multiple Geronimo instances for process isolation (Provisioning?)

                 Key: GERONIMO-4799
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: New Feature
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
    Affects Versions: 2.1.4
            Reporter: Francisco Peredo

Since java has no real process isolation, a misbehaved JEE application can bring down an entire
server (if it has a bug with an infinite-loop for example, or simply because each time applications
are undeployed the JVM is no able to really reclaim all the memory spaced because of bugs
inherent in the JVM design).

 In OAS (Oracle Application Server) this problem is solved by using multiple instances, this
is of course possible in Geronimo (nobody prevents you from running several instances of Geronimo
in your server) but has to be done manually. I would like to see an option in Geronimo Managment
UI where I could just click a button saying: "Create new Geronimo Instance" and then be able
to "Transfer selected applications to another Geronimo Instance" that way related applications
can be kept in the same instance, and unrelated ones can be kept in different instances that
can be restarted independently if they misbehave.
