Jetty vs Tomcat question

  You can either build from source, or download a pre-built distribution; instructions for
both approaches are on the FrontPage.  Assuming you've downloaded the pre-built distribution,
unpack it and read `README.txt` for more instructions.
+ == Jetty or Tomcat ? ==
+ Geronimo support two web containers: [ Jetty] and [
Apache Tomcat] .   While Jetty is not an apache project, it was initially selected for Geronimo
as it is simpler to embed and Jetty developers are involved with the Geronimo project. As
some users have specific requirements for Tomcat, an integration of tomcat is now also available.
 The ability to switch servlet containers is a demonstration of the flexibility of the geronimo
+ For users that stay within the J2EE specification, it is not important which web container
is selected and the default will be suitable.
+ For users with specific requirements or preferences for Jetty or Tomcat, Geronimo supports
that choice.

  The basic component of Geronimo is a GBean. Every service in Geronimo is a set of GBeans,
be it Tomcat or OpenEJB. No OpenJMS GBeans exist.

    Misleading at the moment I know. Any thoughts on what will be included
  eventually to provide Servlet/EJB/JMS/OtherAPIHere? And can we/are we

  == Starting org/apache/geronimo/Server and nothing more - is only ^C the rescue? ==
  This is the same issue as described at [
Assembly Hangs] of the Building. Internally, building and running a Geronimo configuration
is almost the same process (with some minor file management like copying and jar'ing, they're
alike). During the build a configuration is deployed to a Geronimo instance. If there're problems
along the way, e.g. a stale, defunct Geronimo instance running, Apache Geronimo's build and
startup won't succeed. It won't be able to bind to a port or will notice the Runtime``Deployer
works, but other Deployers will not (a partially working Geronimo instance).
