Interesting and lively discussion on configuration/properties :
- Ops guys don't like Annotations in the class as opposed to DD. Looking for externalizable configuration.
Back in the v2 days, the DD files were written to the generated directory. See http://java.net/jira/browse/GLASSFISH-3844 for some oblique references to the behavior.
With the advent of annotations and web-fragments it is fairly difficult for a 'deployer' to compute the deployment configuration for a non-trivial web-app. The same applies to ejb-jars... but not as critical.
