Correct. Geronimo 2.2 includes Tomcat 6.0.x.

You don't connect it to an existing Tomcat installation. Tomcat (or Jetty) is included when
you install Geronimo.

No. Geronimo could replace Tomcat. Tomcat implements the Servlet/JSP specification. Geronimo
can provide full Java EE 5 functionality (Servlet/JSP, JSF, JPA, EJB, JMS, etc). Geronimo
is component-based and the functionality provided by a Geronimo server is flexible. We provide
a full Java EE server and a minimal (web container plus a bit more) server assembly. You can
also create a server assembly with just the features you require. For instance, I know somebody
running Geronimo with OpenEJB and ActiveMQ, but without a web container.

Fairly soon, we hope. I'm guessing 2-3 months.
