I tried deploying the latest rar from the downloads, but it has a  
problem in ra.xml (see firebird issue 1433327).  I fixed the problem  
in firebird cvs, so if you build the rar yourself it will work.   
(I'll also send you a copy privately).  If you want to use something  
closer to the current release, you need to change in ra.xml


and repack the rar.

Anyway, after obtaining a correct rar, you can modify the plan I will  
also send privately to suit your environment and deploy to a running  
server using

java -jar target/geronimo-1.1-SNAPSHOT/bin/deployer.jar --user system  
--password manager deploy jaybird-2.1.0.rar jaybird-plan.xml

This deployed OK for me but I don't have a firebird installation  
handy so I don't know if there are other problems.  Please let me  
know of your progress, I would like there to be a wiki page on using  
firebird/jaybird with Geronimo.

If anyone else would like a copy of the plan I can perhaps get  
started on the wiki page and attach it there.
