Hi Torsten,
Good question.

You may have noticed that the last step of the creation of a new  
security realm is a "deploy" of the realm. During this "deploy",  
Geronimo is creating a system module that represents the new security  

For instance, if you create a security realm named "my-realm", and  
then click on "System Modules" (under Applications), you'll find a  
System Module named "console.realm/my-realm/1.0/car". You can control  
this system module just like any other system module. You might be  
interested in "Uninstall" ;-)

This certainly isn't very intuitive. Would seem reasonable to permit  
control (i.e. deletion) of a security realm from the Security Realm  

I'm not sure why test capabilities aren't available when you are  
editing a security realm. Would seem like a useful option. Perhaps  
someone more familiar with the console can comment...

If you could create Jira's for these two problems, that would be great!
