You might have an out of date xmlbeans plugin.  Originally it came with geronimo rather than xmlbeans and IIRC there were some similar problems when it moved.

Try removing all copies of the xmlbeans plugin (some might start with "geronimo-...") from your local maven repo, the .maven/cache, and the maven installation plugins directory.  The correct plugin should be downloadable from ibiblio.

I recommend upgrading to maven 1.1-b2 as well, but this error should be fixable anyway.

no, I am using maven 1.0.2 and geronimo from trunk. I did an svn update this morning.

I haven't seen that error before.  Are you using Maven 1.1-beta-2?
And what version of Geronimo are you building ( 1.0 source
distribution, or SVN HEAD, or SVN 1.0 branch)?

Thanks,
