I don't know of any way to bypass the deployment process for an  
application in Geronimo.  You can use Geronimo's hot deployment  
feature to avoid some of the manual steps involved in deployment, but  
you said that you actually turned that feature off in Tomcat so I  
assume it's not an acceptable solution.  There has been some  
discussion about adding this type of feature so that applications can  
be run from within an Eclipse workspace directory, but I don't think  
that anything usable has taken shape yet.   Feel free to open a  
feature request for this at
