Hi Peter,
Geronimo is a fully certified Java EE 5 server. Tomcat implements the  
Servlet/JSP specifications, which is a subset of the Java EE 5  
specification. So, Tomcat is a subset of Geronimo. If we don't  
already, we should review the EE 5 technologies on our Wiki site --  
e.g. Having  
network issues, at the moment. So, not sure if it's there already...

Geronimo comes in two configurations -- one embeds Tomcat for JSP/ 
Servlet functionality, the other embeds Jetty. Performance-wise,  
Geronimo will be the same as Tomcat.

Geronimo provides all web services functionality required by the EE 5  
specification (including JAX-WS). There's a choice for web services  
implementations, also: Axis2 or CXF.
