I thank you for your feedback.
Unfortunately, I have not had conclusive information from the information you pointed me to:
· I have not been able to conclude from the general Geronimo doc if different applications run within the same JVM or not. I was hoping that someone who would have played with several applications with Geronimo and Tomcat could tell me firsthand about this.
· You are referring to hot deployment which is different from the cluster automated deployment I was talking about. My use case is the following: if an application is clustered and deployed to n Geronimo nodes, I wonder if there is a feature that will allow that application to be deployed "centrally" from one node rather than being deployed separately on each node (aka n times).
Thanks in advance for the additional piece of information you can find.

Automatic deployment is available for Geronimo v1.0 which is called
For geronimo v1.1 the geronimo web console provides the options to
upload the module or you can use the command line using deploy.jar
java -jar deployer.jar <general_options> redeploy <module> <deployment_plan>
Hope this is useful
