 From past experiences I have found auto-generating and auto-mapping has
its pros and cons.  It makes it easier for the deployer as the deploy
tool makes educated decisions.   However, later when the administrator
or deployer is trouble shooting or reconfiguring, the auto mapped
properties are not obvious.   During deployment (command line automated
or via a gui tool) users could set an "use-suggested-values" that would
allow the deployment process to automatically use the suggested values.
If "use-suggested-values" is not set then properties could be flagged as
needing configuration.  A configuration/deployment/runtime tool could
then have a wizard that would allow these properties to be altered later.
