Subject Geronimo Deployment Descriptors
Date Sat, 06 Sep 2003 21:19:12 GMT
I have recently checked in a XML Schema for a couple of
Geronimo-specific deployment descriptors. These rely on namespaces to
allow vendor-specific elements to be included in standard deployment

For example, an ejb-ref would be defined as:

where ger: is the prefix for the Geronimo namespace.

The way this is intended to work is that the deployer will copy the
standard deployment descriptor file to the Geronimo one and then add in
out entries. If a geronimo descriptor exists, we will not use the
standard one at all so developers will be able to work exclusively with
the geronimo version. We will provide a tool for generating a standard
descriptor by stripping out all geronimo-specific elements.

This is working for the application-client descriptor and we will be
building out the EJB one once we know what the container-specific
elements actually are.

This is a little different from the old-style form of vendor descriptors
(e.g. as used by Weblogic or JBoss) where they were separate documents
that contained just supplemental information. In light of this, I would
appreciate feedback on the approach before we get too far along.
