Deploy New/Install New Application portlet needs some love to help out newbies

                 Key: GERONIMO-5274
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: console
    Affects Versions: 2.2, 2.1.5
            Reporter: Donald Woods
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 2.1.6, 2.2.1, 3.0

Got feedback from a new Geronimo user (one of our OpenJPA committers) when she tried to setup
Geronimo 2.1.5 + OpenJPA2 + Daytrader 2.1.3.

1) Title of "Deploy New" item in the navigation tree should be more generic, like "Deploy
Applications" or "Deployer", as it can be used to redeploy apps
2) The Portlet title of "Install New Applications" should be more generic just like the menu
title, like "Deploy Applications", as it can also be used to redeploy apps
3) The "Plan" field needs to be relabeled as "Plan (optional):" as the deployment plan is
4) The Help for the portlet needs some updating:
4a) The Archive field can be WAR/EAR/RAR and not just the mentioned WAR type.
4b) The Plan field needs more description, like mentioning it is optional.  Also it should
mention "archive" instead of "war" as multiple file types are supported as stated in 4a. 
Need to also reword that it can be a deployment plan not included in the archive or a stand-alone
deployment plan when a RAR is being used or for providing environment specific settings like
the DB plans used with Daytrader.
4c) the "Redeploy application" option in the portlet is not mentioned in the Help and needs
to be added
5) we shouldn't use "app" as an abbreviation for "application" for the checkbox "Start app
after install"
