Don't try to do this.  You  should either
a. call the geronimo deployer supplying the location of your war file  
from your script


b. use maven to "pre-deploy" your war into a geronimo plugin and have  
your script install the plugin by using the geronimo deployer

or (my preference)

c. use geronimo 2.2, and use maven to assemble a custom server  
including the plugin as in 2.  In this case your script would just  
unpack the server and start it.

If you copy an ee app into the geronimo repository geronimo won't know  
about it and there will be no way to tell geronimo to use it.  You  
have to go through the geronimo deployment process so geronimo can set  
up additional info about your app, such as the fact that it should be  
started with the server (recorded in var/config/config.xml)
