+Installation Instructions
+-------------------------
 
-
-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 ${pom.version} and the installation
-process will begin. Once the workbench restarts Geronimo ${pom.version} 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 ${pom.version}" 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/${pom.version}/
-
-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.
