Deployment plans are the Geronimo version of the J2EE deployment descriptors. They are still XML files based on XML schemas and containing the configuration details for a specific application module. Via the deployment plans you can not only deploy application modules but also other configurations such as a security realm, see the Deploying secure applications and Deploy the LDAP realm sections for further details and examples.

The following table illustrates the deployment descriptors name and file location for both standard J2EE and Apache Geronimo specific.
