So for the metadata.xml, no it's absolutely not required to have one. But in the 1.4.0, the
metadata.xml allows to declare instances. (in the 1.5.0-SNAPSHOT, there is a new annotation
for that).

The validate method will be call if you have declared an instance of your component. iPOJO
interprets @Component as a component type declaration, so you have to declare instances. To
declare instances, you can use the configu admin or the metadata.xml. In this latter case,
just create a simple metadata.xml containing
<instance component="....HelloClient"/>

But as far as I see, the maven-ipojo-plugin was not called on your bundle. So add to your
pom file the following excerpt:

Then, the resulting manifest should contains a specific header with a weird content. If so,
your bundle was correctly manipulated, and your bundle will be managed by iPOJO.
