Help! I need a deployment descriptor
By vbkraemer on Oct 26, 2007
JavaEE 5 has been a huge boost for developers. One of the best changes has been elimination of deployment descriptor files for the "80%" use-cases. That has been reflected in NetBeans. In the past, when users would create and EJB Module, the ejb-jar.xml file and the sun-ejb-jar.xml file would get created automatically. Now, they are created by wizards, at the users request.
The problem with this is the fact that there are about a gazillion wizards for new files!
So, I figured I would provide a quick visual tour to the wizards for the ejb-jar.xml and the sun-ejb-jar.xml....
