That's certainly the normal environment for for environment for cgi  
scripts. However, you can run cgi-bin scripts within Tomcat. I've  
certainly never tried it. And doubt it would be very scalable. See for more info.

Geronimo doesn't include the cgi "renametojar" files which Tomcat  
provides. However, if you add the Tomcat cgi jars to the Geronimo  
repository and/or deployed the necessary jar files, there's a decent  
chance you could get it working...
