Administering Apache Geronimo through Custom Server Assemblies

Simple administration tasks are often easy using the Geronimo admin console or direct editing of configuration files. However this is not particularly amenable to reproducibility or auditing. An alternate approach is to assemble customized servers that are preconfigured exactly as needed including the applications and services required. I'll show how to do this in a controllable workflow amenable to source control and how this can be used for easy cluster administration.
