RE: [wtp-dev] EJb 3.0 and Ejb client project

Hi Neeraj,
Please see related bug that explains why having a EJB client project requires having ejb-jar.xml descriptor. It is not a restriction. It is requirement by the EJB spec to declare the client jar in the ejb-jar.xml - hence we need to generate ejb-jar.xml.
There are absolutely no restrictions to have an ejb.jar.xml and all your EJB bean metadata to be in annotations. In this case, the only metadata in the ejb-jar.xml will be the ejb-client-jar tag, which does not have a Java annotation alternative. I don't understand your worry here.

In WTP, for EJB 3.0 projects you can't  create EJB client project unless you have deployment descriptor, and,  we are requiring  deployment descriptor to be generated when you create a client project.

I think that is a restriction we are imposing, it means we cannot create an EJB client view.
Think of the case where you  have  EJb project with no deployment descriptor  and just have annotated beans, and the clients of the beans are remote.  Since you cannot have client view project, you wont be able to distribute interfaces easily.
