Currently it supports the generation of the openejb-jar.xml file for 
session and message-driven beans. See the JIRA issue regarding 
limitations/further work required.

There may be people who already have EJB applications written for other 
application servers where the build of the EJB application uses XDoclet 
tags (e.g. @ejb and @weblogic/@websphere/@jboss) in their EJBs.

The Geronimo XDoclet plugin adds support for the @geronimo tag. 
Therefore those XDoclet users could add the appropriate @geronimo tags 
to their EJBs to generate openejb-jar.xml files in addition to the other 
App server specific files. Note that it isn't as simple as changing 
@weblogic to @geronimo in your EJB code though, since the tag parameters 
are application server specific.
