No XDoclet that I know of... I write them by hand.  BTW, The 
openejb-jar.xml is not required anymore.

OpenEJB will support EJB 3 no matter how bad the spec come out.  We may 
not recommend anyone use EJB 3 (and I wouldn't right now), but we will 
support it.

You can put GBean XML declarations into any descriptor.  Specifically 
in this case, you can put them in your geronimo-application.xml file.  
If you want the GBean to start first, you need to declare a single 
valued reference (dependency) from your GBean to the EJB (object name 
as determined by JSR 77).

Yes, but there is only one Configuration object created, and it is that 
object that is serialized.
