I’m not exactly sure how to interpret it either. Looks like the 
objective is to make sure the value for 'deploymentDescriptor' attribute 
of J2EEDeployedObject is always set to the combined or full DD (partial 
DD plus deployment annotations). Our current implementation passes the 
DD values to the constructors of the concrete classes that implement 
J2EEDeployedObject. So my guess is checking and manipulation of DD 
should be done inside the classes that call those constructors. Thoughts?

Looking at the latest specs there are no API changes. I’ll update this 
thread if I find anything…
