I also feel that project is not very alive. Most alive open source 
application server project is Glassfish. but it has significant number 
of bugs. I already tried 2 times to deploy it in production - once for 
glassfish V2.0 and second few years later with glassfish 3.1.1 and had 
to step back.

I currently use JBoss 7.1.1. Documentation for AS 7 is bad probably even 
worse then Geronimo docs, official forums are not much alive, posts has 
< 100 reads. Fighting with classloading issues in JBoss is challenging 
as well in geronimo, i was unable to solve some classloading issues as 
well - had to build own J2EE minimal stack and deploy it into Jetty 7. 
But i was more successful in fighting these problems in jboss then in 

As i understand open source community in general do not like J2EE 
concept and tends to use simpler solutions like tomcat, which means that 
OS J2EE app servers are not on community radar with exception of 
Glassfish - which is popular because its offered as J2EE download from 
oracle site.
