IIRC, cxf is introducing spring into the application classloader. This  
can lead to spring version conflicts (case in point...). You can  
filter spring from the parent classloaders and use the application  
supplied spring jars, instead. The following geronimo deployment plan  
should do the trick:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<web-app xmlns=""  
          Don't load spring classes or resources from parent  

You should be able to generate a minimal server with admin console  
capabilities (adding console to a minimal server or from javaee server  
using the admin console).
