<p>Geronimo 2.1 Enhancements<br/>

<p>Custom server assemblies</p>
<ul class="alternate" type="square">
	<li>Lightweight server assemblies may be created that contain only the functional<br/>
  components required by your application(s).</li>

<p>Flexible admin console</p>
<ul class="alternate" type="square">
	<li>The admin console is now component-based to mirror the server capabilities.<br/>
  This allows the admin console to provide flexible administrative capabilities<br/>
  that will mirrors the capabilities of a custom server assembly.</li>

<ul class="alternate" type="square">
	<li>GShell is a command-line processing environment that can be used for the execution<br/>

  for editing, command history, and tab completion.</li>

<p>Clustering Support</p>
<ul class="alternate" type="square">
	<li>WADI can now be used to support clustering of web applications for Geronimo configurations<br/>
  which use the Tomcat Web Container (WADI support for Jetty was in previous releases).</li>
	<li>Applications can be deployed to administratively-defined groups of Geronimo servers</li>

<p>Monitoring Console Plugin</p>
<ul class="alternate" type="square">
	<li>The monitoring console plugin provides monitoring support in the Geronimo admin
  The monitoring console can gather statistics and performance data from multiple Geronimo<br/>
  servers and graphically display this data to users.</li>

<p>Plan Creator (added in Geronimo 2.1.2)</p>
<ul class="alternate" type="square">

<p>Certification Status<br/>
Apache Geronimo v2.1.5 has passed 100% of SUN's Java Enterprise Edition 5.0<br/>
Certification Test Suite. See "Distributions" for further details.</p>

Apache Geronimo v2.1.5 is available in five distributions so you can pick the<br/>
one that best fits your environment.</p>

<p>The available distributions are as follows:</p>

<p>Certified distributions:</p>
<ul class="alternate" type="square">
	<li>Apache Geronimo with Tomcat web container, AXIS2 for Web Services and OpenJPA<br/>
  for persistence.</li>
	<li>Apache Geronimo with Jetty web container, CXF for Web Services and OpenJPA<br/>
  for persistence.</li>

<p>Non-Certified distributions:</p>
<ul class="alternate" type="square">
	<li>Little-G with Tomcat web container, minimal configuration.</li>
	<li>Little-G with Jetty web container, minimal configuration.</li>
	<li>Geronimo framework, stripped down Geronimo pluggable framework.</li>

<p>Note: Non-Certified distributions do not contain a complete JavaEE5 stack and so<br/>
cannot be certified.  Certified distributions can be reconfigured by the user<br/>
(such as Tomcat web container with CXF for Web Services).</p>

<p>Supported features<br/>
All programming elements of the Java EE 5.0 Specification are available.</p>
