The best way to do this is to put the fop jars into the geronimo  
repository at appropraite locations (if the jars are in a maven repo  
use the same locations)  Then include dependencies on these jars in  
your geronimo plan for the web app.

This is pretty basic geronimo information and should be well and  
clearly documented.  If you cant quickly find more complete  
instructions on could you file a  
jira at
