Thanks for the information. Sounds interesting...

Somebody had some problems deploying an Axis2-based web services  
sample on Geronimo 1.1.1 on 1.6. He reported the sample ran fine on a  
1.5 jre. So, there do seem to be some potential for 1.6 issues.

Another user was starting to run Geronimo 1.2-beta or 2.0-M1 on 1.6.  
I don't recall hearing any reports back on his progress other than  
the server started...

Let us know how things go for you...
