My reference to "the Eclipse > Software Update option" below was just an
example reference to a nice easy pull solution to version upgrades.

I was wondering if Geronimo had any plans of offering some type of
migration solution (i.e. executable, script, etc.) to expedite version
migrations for the users.  Our current vendor app server offers this and
another open source app server here does not, and it is becoming more an
more of a productivity killer issue.

We are constantly kicking around ideas of how to improve the user
It sounds like your primary concern is updates and synchronization when
in Eclipse or another IDE.  Is this correct?  Do you have requirements
runtime updates as well?
