Subject Re: Fixed context parameters

We don't do anything like that.  For us, servlet context params must  
be set in web.xml.

I would be willing to consider allowing them to be overridden in the  
geronimo plan for that web app, but I don't think it's a good idea to  
have a global override across web apps.  You could try convincing me  
otherwise :-)

Another mechanism you might consider is using system  properties.  We  
have a gbean that lets you set as many system properties as you want,  
and of course they are available to all applications.  There's an  
example of this gbean in the rmi-naming plan/configuration.
