	I think JSR-88 can be made to work in most any case.  The API can 
update the original EAR, write out a new DD (XML or otherwise) and send it 
to the server, serialize a bunch of objects, call methods on the server, 
etc.  It's supposed to expose a "deployment plan" to the tool, but that 
can be in any form.
