Fact is, the EAR, EJB and Web project wizard all have a checkbox to create a deployment descriptor.
It's checked by default in the Web wizard, but unchecked in both the EAR and EJB one - which
made me think that it was optional and that GEP would be OK without a descriptor. Mind you,
Geronimo is completely OK with deploying an EAR without the descriptor as long as it get it's
deployment plan, but GEP is definitly not (or more probably the underlying JST).
A warning when the checkbox is unchecked, plus having it checked by default could be nice.
