that's pretty confusing ;-(  Maybe I can figure out what it's trying  
to say.

I haven't checked if it actually works yet but I'm pretty sure the jms- 
mdb-sample deploys OK with the plan generated by building with maven.   
(I think this will work with samples/branches/2.1 but haven't  
checked.  I'm more confident about samples/trunk which works with  
geronimo server trunk (2.2-SNAPSHOT)).  After checking out all of  
samples/trunk (or branches/2.1) build it with maven and look in  
plan.xml for the plan to use.

This app does include the jms configuration right in the ear which  
works fine although I don't think its as flexible as having it in a  
separate plugin.

hope this helps
