Unless you are tied into Hotspot (Sun JVM), BEA/Oracle's JRockit does not have a perm size
issue and it will work with Geronimo as a service.

Had I had a README I would have read them... well I have the .sh files
but they don't mention it either.

ls bin/
client.bat  cxf-tools.bat  deploy.bat    geronimo.bat    gsh
 jaxws-tools.bat  jpa.jar
startup.bat  stop-server.bat
client.jar  cxf-tools.jar  deployer.jar     gsh.bat
 jaxws-tools.jar  server.jar      shutdown.bat   start-server   setjavaenv.bat  shutdown.jar   start-server.bat

Beyond that I have another question. Inside the .groovy file, how can
I reference environment variables? I'm hoping to only update to make upgrading easier.
