Documentation
-------------
Please see http:<span class="code-comment">//cwiki.apache.org/GMOxDOC21/documentation.html
<span class="code-keyword">for</span> the
</span>latest documentation on <span class="code-keyword">this</span> release.


<span class="code-object">System</span> Requirements
-------------------
You need a platform that supports the Sun JDK 5.0+ (J2SE 1.5.0+) or greater.

Most testing has been done on Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows.


Geronimo 2.1 Enhancements
-------------------------

Custom server assemblies
- Lightweight server assemblies may be created that contain only the functional 
  components required by your application(s).

Flexible admin console
- The admin console is now component-based to mirror the server capabilities. 
  This allows the admin console to provide flexible administrative capabilities 
  that will mirrors the capabilities of a custom server assembly.

GShell
- GShell is a command-line processing environment that can be used <span class="code-keyword">for</span>
the execution
  of Geronimo commands. GShell is an extensible environment and includes support
  <span class="code-keyword">for</span> editing, command history, and tab completion.


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

Monitoring Console Plugin
- The monitoring console plugin provides monitoring support in the Geronimo admin console.

  The monitoring console can gather statistics and performance data from multiple Geronimo

  servers and graphically display <span class="code-keyword">this</span> data
to users.

Plan Creator (added in Geronimo 2.1.2)
- Plan Creator is a <span class="code-keyword">new</span> portlet added to administration
console to simplify the creation of 
  Geronimo specific deployment plans. Given a web application archive (war), Plan Creator
walks 
  the user through a sequence of steps and generates geronimo-web.xml automatically.


Geronimo 2.1.6 Issues Resolved
------------------------------
** Bug
GERONIMO-5383 Update to <span class="code-keyword">new</span> versions of CXF

Certification Status
--------------------
Apache Geronimo v2.1.x has passed 100% of SUN's Java Enterprise Edition 5.0 
Certification Test Suite. See <span class="code-quote">"Distributions"</span>
<span class="code-keyword">for</span> further details.


Distributions
-------------
Apache Geronimo v2.1.x is available in five distributions so you can pick the 
one that best fits your environment.

The available distributions are as follows:

Certified distributions:
- Apache Geronimo with Tomcat web container, AXIS2 <span class="code-keyword">for</span>
Web Services and OpenJPA
  <span class="code-keyword">for</span> persistence.
- Apache Geronimo with Jetty web container, CXF <span class="code-keyword">for</span>
Web Services and OpenJPA 
  <span class="code-keyword">for</span> persistence.

- Geronimo framework, stripped down Geronimo pluggable framework.

Note: Non-Certified distributions <span class="code-keyword">do</span> not contain
a complete JavaEE5 stack and so 
cannot be certified.  Certified distributions can be reconfigured by the user
