First guess is that we are not looking inside the WAR for the 
geronimo-jetty.xml file when it is embedded inside the EAR - I think 
this is by intent.

One option would be to copy the web-app element from that file into the 
geronimo-application.xml file e.g.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<application xmlns=""

     <web-app xmlns=""



Apologies for the formatting.

You do not need to include these files inside the archives themselves 
(which makes things easier IMHO) - you would deploy them externally 
using something like

java -jar bin/deployer.jar deploy myear.ear g-app.xml

Hope this helps
