 = GBeans =
 A GBeanMBean is a J2EE Management Managed Object, and is standard base for Geronimo services.
GBean is a class or object that Geronimo the container can manage the lifecycle of. So, for
example, when you deploy parts into a container you want to start them and stop them, and
they have dependencies: Such as 'Bean A' can only start up when 'Bean B' is ready to go because
'Bean B' provides services that 'Bean A' needs. So, GBeans are Geronimo's way of packaging
up things are that need to be managed, and can express dependencies. The GBeans architecture
lies at the heart of Geronimo's power to enable developers to move or work with their existing
J2EE assets, whether Open Source or commercial. 
 GBeans are designed to let you take things you have, put a GBean wrapper around them, and
use that to bridge the JSR 77 lifecycle requirements which GBeans support). You can take anything
lying around and get it to work with GBeans. In addition, the GBeans will let developers bring
other existing Open Source Java projects into the Geronimo orbit.
