Subject Re: Can Geronimo be used in a standalone mode?

No, you do not need Apache HTTPD, you can use the webcontainer that  
comes in Geronimo (either Tomcat or Jetty depending on which  
distribution you pick).  If you want you can setup an AJP connector  
from the webcontainer in Geronimo to allow an Apache HTTPD to  
integration with Geronimo seamlessly.  This is handy if you have  
other apps that you need to run that are in PHP (or something) and  
want to present your users with a single URL to access both  
(otherwise you'd need 2 urls, one for HTTPD and one for Geronimo).

HTTPD also makes a nice SSL accelerator for use with Geronimo  
applications, so you can configure HTTPD to use SSL, setup AJP to  
connect up Geronimo, and then block off all other ports to Geronimo  
so that the site is more secure.
