+
+
+System Requirements
+-------------------
+1. Sun JDK 5.0+ (J2SE 1.5)
+
+2. Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers (Ganymede or Europa), which is platform-specific
+
+3. Geronimo server (2.0.x or 2.1.x)
+
+
+
+Notes
+-----
+You will likely need to increase the default setting for maximum PermGen size
+for your Eclipse installation (especially for Sun's JDK 1.5.0_x on the Windows
+platform) to prevent "java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: PermGen" errors. From the
+command line you can use:
+
+        eclipse -vmargs -Xms128m -Xmx512m -XX:MaxPermSize=128m
+
+Or you can edit your eclipse.ini file. An example is shown below but remember
+that each argument has to be on seperate lines:
+
+        -vmargs
+        -Xms128m
+        -Xmx512m
+        -XX:MaxPermSize=128m
+
+
+
+Geronimo Eclipse Plugin Version 2.1.2 Enhancements
+--------------------------------------------------
+1. Eclipse Ganymede support (along with continued Europa support)
+
+2. Java 1.6 runtime support (along wiht continued 1.5 runtime support)
+
+3. Numerous enhancements the Geronimo deployment plan editors
+
+4. "Download and Install" server feature replaced with a URL link to the Geronimo Server
download page
+
+
+
+Installation Option #1: Install from within WTP
+-----------------------------------------------
+There a several installation alternatives, but the easiest method is not to
+download the plugin at all !! It can be installed directly from within WTP by
+clicking on the "Don't see your server listed?" link when defining a server
+runtime in WTP. Select it, then select Geronimo 2.1.2 and the installation
+process will begin. Once the workbench restarts Geronimo 2.1.2 support will be
+available.
+
+1 -- Invoke the eclipse executable from your /eclipse directory.  Select or
+     accept the default workspace.
+
+2 -- Open the Preferences dialog:
+
+     a. Window  --> Preferences --> Server --> Installed Runtimes --> Click
+        "Add"
+
+     b. Select "Download addtional server adapters
+
+     c. Select the "Geronimo v2.1 Server Adapter 2.1.2" adapter
+
+     d. Select Next --> Accept the license agreement --> Next --> Finish
+
+     e. It will then download and install the plugin artifacts (takes a few
+        seconds)
+
+     f. Select "Install All"
+
+     g. Select Yes to restart Eclipse
+
+3 -- Verify that the GEP was correctly installed:
+
+     a. Help --> About Eclipse Platform
+
+     b. Ensure that the Geronimo icon displays somewhere in the row of icons in the "About

+        Eclipse Platform" pane. If not, the GEP was not installed correctly. 
+
+4 -- Define a new server. From Eclipse select:
+
+     a. File --> New --> Other --> Server --> Server --> Next --> Apache.

+        At this point you must see the Apache Geronimo v2.1 Server selection
+        or the plugin was not installed/unzipped correctly. 
+
+     b. Select "Apache Geronimo v2.1 Server" --> Next --> then enter the root 
+        directory of your Geronimo server installation --> Next --> Next --> 
+        Next --> Finish
+
+     c. Now in the Java EE perspective you should see the Apache Geronimo v2.1 
+        server (bottom pane, middle tab usually) that you can now start in 
+        Eclipse (either right-click on it and select start or select the little
+        green and white arrow on the far right of the server pane). You should 
+        then see the console and the familiar server startup messages.
+	
+     d. Right-click on the server and select "Launch Geronimo Console" to bring
+        up an admin console browser window in Eclipse.
+
+
+
+Installation Option #2: Use Eclipse Update Site
+-----------------------------------------------
+Alternatively, you can download both the Eclipse Plugin from the Eclipse Update 
+Site. Again if you've never done this before the steps are fairly straightforward:
+
+1 -- Invoke the eclipse executable from your /eclipse directory.  Select or
+     accept the default workspace. 
+
+2 -- Open the Eclipse Software Updates dialog:
+
+     a. Help --> Software Updates --> Available Software
+
+     b. On the "Available Software" tab you must add a new remote site to 
+        point to the Staging site.  Click "Add Site" button --> set URL to this:
+   
+        http://apache.org/dist/geronimo/eclipse/updates/
+
+     c. Expand this site and select the "Geronimo v2.1 Server Adapter" and click the
+        "Install" button. You may likely have to wait a few seconds while Eclipse 
+        resolves the dependencies. 
+
+     d. Select Next --> Accept the license agreement --> Finish
+
+     e. It will then download and install the plugin artifacts (takes a few 
+        seconds)
+
+     f. Select Yes to restart Eclipse
+
+3 -- Verify that the GEP was correctly installed:
+
+     a. Help --> About Eclipse Platform
+
+     b. Ensure that the Geronimo icon displays somewhere in the row of icons in the "About

+        Eclipse Platform" pane. If not, the GEP was not installed correctly. 
+
+4 -- Define a new server. From Eclipse select:
+
+     a. File --> New --> Other --> Server --> Server --> Next --> Apache.

+        At this point you must see the Apache Geronimo v2.1 Server selection
+        or the plugin was not installed/unzipped correctly. 
+
+     b. Select "Apache Geronimo v2.1 Server" --> Next --> then enter the root 
+        directory of your Geronimo server installation --> Next --> Next --> 
+        Next --> Finish
+
+     c. Now in the Java EE perspective you should see the Apache Geronimo v2.1 
+        server (bottom pane, middle tab usually) that you can now start in 
+        Eclipse (either right-click on it and select start or select the little
+        green and white arrow on the far right of the server pane). You should 
+        then see the console and the familiar server startup messages.
+	
+     d. Right-click on the server and select "Launch Geronimo Console" to bring
+        up an admin console browser window in Eclipse.
+
+
+
+Installation Option #3: Install Plugin Manually
+-----------------------------------------------
+You can just download the plugin itself and unzip it into the same directory
+where the prereq was installed (e.g., /eclipse). If you choose this option 
+you must have an installed version of the Geronimo 2.1 server somewhere on your 
+system so that you can define a Geronimo Server configuration. If you've never 
+done this before the steps are fairly straightforward:
+
+1 -- Download the GEP and unzip into your /eclipse directory. You can 
+     download the plugin from here: 
+
+     http://apache.org/dist/geronimo/eclipse/2.1.2/
+
+2 -- Invoke the eclipse executable from your /eclipse directory. Select or
+     accept the default workspace. 
+
+3 -- Verify that the GEP was correctly installed:
+
+     a. Help --> About Eclipse Platform
+
+     b. Ensure that the Geronimo icon displays somewhere in the row of icons in the "About

+        Eclipse Platform" pane. If not, the GEP was not installed correctly. 
+
+4 -- Open the Java EE perspective. From within Eclipse:
+
+     a. Close the Welcome tab
+
+     b. Select Window --> Open Perspective --> Other --> Java EE
+        You should now be in the Java EE perspective. You can see the open 
+        perspective tabs in the upper right-hand corner of your Eclipse  
+        workspace.
+
+5 -- Define a new server. From Eclipse select:
+
+     a. File --> New --> Other --> Server --> Server --> Next --> Apache.

+        At this point you must see the Apache Geronimo v2.1 Server selection
+        or the plugin was not installed/unzipped correctly. 
+
+     b. Select "Apache Geronimo v2.1 Server" --> Next --> then enter the root 
+        directory of your Geronimo server installation --> Next --> Next --> 
+        Next --> Finish
+
+     c. Now in the Java EE perspective you should see the Apache Geronimo v2.1 
+        server (bottom pane, middle tab usually) that you can now start in 
+        Eclipse (either right-click on it and select start or select the little
+        green and white arrow on the far right of the server pane). You should 
+        then see the console and the familiar server startup messages.
+	
+     d. Right-click on the server and select "Launch Geronimo Console" to bring
+        up an admin console browser window in Eclipse.
