I'm a little bit confused about what you want.  The original request  
was for advice on how to call some gbean methods from within the  
geronimo vm.  We also have a lot of gshell commands that call these  
gbean methods from another vm running gshell, and of course there are  
lot of maven plugins that let you do this stuff.  You mention ant  
repeatedly.... do you want some way to call these methods from ant?   
Or from another vm?  JMX should certainly work but you should be able  
to write some simpler client code if you use gbean proxies as the  
gshell code does.

Ant tasks should be pretty easy to write also, I think no one here  
uses ant much so it hasn't been a priority.  If you would like to try  
we can give you some advice and if you could contribute them that  
would be great!
