There are a lot of choices.  I prefer to use an external plan called  
plan.xml.  If you include the plan in the web app it can be called  
geronimo-web.xml for either jetty or tomcat.  For tomcat you can also  
use geronimo-tomcat.xml.  For these embedded plans it needs to be in  

If your web app is part of an ear the web plan can also be in a  
geronimo-application.xml  for the ear or you can have an external plan  
for the entire ear.

The most important things to specify are the name of the geronimo  
plugin you are constructing (the "module-id"), the dependencies which  
specify the classloader for your web app, and the context root.  If  
you have named datasources or ejbs badly you might need to map the  
names specified in your web.xml or annotations to the actual names.   
You can also specify a few tomcat specific features such as virtual  
hosts IIRC.

hope this helps
