You should be able to just put the version of tomcat you want in the  
geronimo repo (at the appropriate location, e.g. repository/org/ 
apache/tomcat/catalina/6.0.12/catalina-6.0.12.jar).  If you want to  
downgrade tomcat you will need to remove the tomcat jars that are  
already present.

This will work as long as the version is not specified in the  
dependency on tomcat jars in the geronimo-dependencies.xml file in  
the geronimo-tomcat jar.  If your version of geronimo happens to  
mistakenly have versions there, you'd have to rebuild g. with the  
tomcat version you want specified.

xml parser?  Isn't this specified by a system property?  I think  
you'll need to put the jaxp jars you want in lib/endorsed to get them  
appropriately on the classpath and I think you'll need to specify the  
property on the command line rather than with the SystemProperties  
gbean.... that would probably be too late.

don't let any wars in the ear? :-)  all ejb and connector modules in  
an ear currently share a classloader.  Each war gets a child  
classloader, and there's not way to change that.  What exactly are  
you trying to do?

can you explain this service?  i thought users could use  
System.getProperty().....  We do have a SystemProperties gbean, maybe  
that is similar?
