You can deploy it on its own. Just point the deployer to the plan. If using the Admin Console just select "Deploy New" and fill in the plan field (leaving the application/module field empty).

I'm trying to create a system-wide cluster config as a deployable module
and then reference it from geronimo-web.xml

The deployment descriptor below - should it be packaged as an ejb-jar?
And do you deploy it as an application or as a common-lib?

Thank you,

Thanks, all.  The following plan will create a system-wide mail session.
In your J2EE module, you just need to declare a dependency on it.

<module xmlns="">

  <gbean name="MailSession" class="org.apache.geronimo.mail.MailGBean">
    <attribute name="transportProtocol">smtp</attribute>
    <attribute name="useDefault">false</attribute>
    <attribute name="host">mailserver</attribute>
    <attribute name="properties">
