1.1 is a pretty old version of Geronimo. Would suggest you upgrade to  
a later version.

By application module, do you mean a war or ear? New modules should be  
deployed using the 'deploy' command (or configured during a build).  
The module configuration information (, etc) are built as  
part of this process... This module configuration is really internal  
to the server and not something you would need to worry about (unless  
you want to get involved with server internals -- in which case, your  
help would be more than welcome!).
