If you are writing a deployment tool, I would strongly suggest that it use
JSR 88 DDBean and DConfigBeans as its data model - that will allow it to
deploy applications to _any_ J2EE1.4 server.

[Remember, the provider part of JSR88 is mandatory, the tool part is
optional ]]

Please sync with Aaron Mulder on loading the standard XML config into
DDBeans. And, for James, this is the application for the pure-standard data
