Subject Re: Cannot install any Geronimo Sample apps
Date Mon, 24 Nov 2008 15:01:39 GMT
Hi German,

Can you clarify which Geronimo server you are using?  Is it Geronimo 2.1

would be 2.1.4-SNAPSHOT), or something else (such as 2.1.1, 2.1.2, or 

I recommend that you use Geronimo 2.1.2, 2.1.3, or 2.1.4-SNAPSHOT since 
our 2.1.2 Samples will only work with those versions at this point in time.
