There have been a number of improvements, enhancements and bug fixes in this release. Described below are the most significant ones.

Geronimo distributions

cover the different downloads and certification status.

Feature enhancements and additions

Custom server assemblies

  • Lightweight server assemblies may be created that contain only the functional components required by your application(s). With previous versions of Geronimo, it was possible to create a custom server assembly as a build-time operation. It is now much simpler to create custom assemblies. Also, custom assemblies can be created that are tailor-built to the requirements of your applications.
    The Geronimo project distributes 3 pre-defined server assemblies (an "assembly" is a binary distribution of Geronimo which is pre-configured and ready to run). The 3 pre-defined server assemblies distributed by the Geronimo project are:
    1. Framework: contains only the Geronimo kernel with JMX and RMI Naming capability,
    2. Minimal: contains Web Container (e.g. JSP/Servlet), transaction, and connector,
    3. Java EE 5: contains all of the functionality required to be a fully Java EE 5 compliant.

      Geronimo now has Admin Console and Admin Command support for generating custom assemblies. Build-time customization is still available, but is much simpler than in previous versions of Geronimo.
      There are two modes of custom assembly creation:
    4. Function centric – Choose the functionality that suits your needs
    5. Application centric – Let your applications define the contents of your server

For more information on custom server assemblies, see Extracting a server from an existing server and Assembling a server using maven

Console Realm

Pluggable Administration Console

The Geronimo Administration Console is now component-based to mirror the flexible server capabilities. This allows the console to provide flexible administrative capabilities that mirror the capabilities of a custom server assembly.

In previous releases of Geronimo, the Administration Console was a monolithic implementation. It could only be used to manage a Java EE server assembly. It could not reasonably be used to manage alternate configurations of Geronimo (e.g. a Minimal server assembly).

Components update

Several components have been either updated or added since AG2.0. A components version table has been generated below in the component version section. The components that are bold are either newly introduced or upgraded from AG2.0 to AG 2.1.

Console enhancements

Several revisions and enhancements have been applied to the Administration console. Users may first notice the revision of links on the homepage of the Administration console. Certain navigation links in the left-pane have been renamed to better fit its functionality. A more detailed listing of the renamed links is provided in the table at the start of the "Geronimo Administrator Console".

Other enhancements include a Monitoring application and the Expert mode feature.

Expert mode

The expert mode feature is intended to allow advanced user more control of their processes running on the Apache Geronimo server. Typically, certain critical processes aren't accessible by users to modify. However, the expert mode option will enable users full control.

Deployment plans wizard

This new portlet, available in the Administration Console, assists users in making the deployment process easier. This wizard will guide users through a sequence of configurations to help facilitate the generation of the geronimo-web.xml file for WAR files.

The process of the Deployment Plan Wizard involves a series of questions to gather specific information to resolve dependency and references.

See Plan Creator for more details.

CA helper

The Certificate Authority (CA) portlet aids in providing the setup for a CA and issues certificates in correspondence to Certificate Signing Requests (CSR). The portlet also allows the initialization of the CA.

See the Geronimo Administration Console for further details.

GShell

GShell is a command-line processing environment that can be used for the execution of Geronimo commands. GShell is an extensible environment and includes support for editing, command history, and tab completion.

A number of Geronimo administrative commands have been implemented using GShell. The old administrative scripts (e.g. geronimo.sh/.bat, deploy.sh/bat, etc) are still available. However, over time, we will be moving our administrative command support to be solely GShell-based.

For documentation on base GShell capabilities, see ...

For information on the Geronimo administrative commands, see ...

Clustering Support

WADI can now be used to support the replication of HTTP Session state among multiple Geronimo servers. In previous releases of Geronimo, WADI could only be used along with the Jetty configuration of Geronimo. WADI can now be used with Tomcat configurations of Geronimo.

In addition to the new session replication support, applications can now be deployed to administratively-defined groups of Geronimo servers. This makes it easier to manage a single application across a number of Geronimo servers.

For additional information on the clustering capabilities of Geronimo, see ...

Monitoring Console Plugin

The monitoring console plugin provides monitoring support in the Geronimo Administration Console. The monitoring console can gather statistics and performance data from multiple Geronimo servers and graphically display this data to users.

Configuration changes

Review the configuration changes in a 2.1 server.

  • the new config.xml
  • plugins interaction
  • defaults
  • config-substitution

Backwards compatibility

Geronimo plugin metadata (META-INF/geronimo-plugin.xml) and plugin catalog (geronimo-plugins.xml) content is incompatible with previous versions (1.x and 2.0.x). If you have a geronimo plugin for an earlier version of Geronimo you will have to manually convert it to the new schema. The best way to do this is to build the plugin with maven and use the car-maven-plugin to generate the metadata. See Plugin infrastructure

Security configuration of run-as and default identities is incompatible with geronimo 1.x versions. If you use run-as roles or default identities you will have to manually modify your geronimo plans to the new mechanism. See Configuring run-as and Default Subjects, and principal-role mapping

Review backward compatibility issues.

Global JNDI for resources and admin objects

Starting in Geronimo 2.0 all ejbs are bound in global jndi using a configurable pattern. Starting in Geronimo 2.1 all resources such as datasources and admin objects (e.g. jms queues and topics) are also bound in global jndi using a pattern configurable in var/config/config-substitutions.properties. See JNDI
