Thinking more about the clarification in
EJB_SPEC-61 (thanks, Marina, for adding that!) raised the question of whether it makes sense to require support for deployment descriptors prior to EJB 3.0 in EJB lite. EJB lite does not require entity beans, mdb's, or 2.x home/component view for session beans. Since there is no way to properly define an "EJB lite session bean" with a pre-EJB 3.0 descriptor and other bean types are not required, there seems to be no value in (or ability) to use a <=2.1 descriptor with EJB lite. Unless someone can think of a reason why a pre-EJB 3.0 descriptor could be used with EJB lite, section 17.0.1 (EJB 3.2, pd2) should be modified to state (or footnote) that only 3.0 and greater DDs are supported for EJB lite. We should also add this to section 16.1, on the deployment descriptor bullet and/or in the table.
nit - there are also a couple misspellings in 17.0.1 that should be fixed up - writen and specfication.
