We support deployment with external plans so you would not need to add 
it into the ear file itself (this fits the JSR88 model).

You can generate the plan using the Configuration side of JSR88. 
However, this writes out an external plan rather than modifying the 
original file.

The reason for all this is to allow the same, possibly signed, EAR to be 
deployed to multiple servers (possibly ones from different vendors). 
However, if you want to put the plans inside the archive, that is 
supported as well.
