Is there a tool for creating a deploment descriptor for ejbs, or one for parsing a deployment descriptor.
Thanks for any help.

Personally, when writing EJB's I find XDoclet a godsend. This not only creates the deployment descriptors but the interfaces and primary keys etc.
Failing that most of the enterprise level IDE's supply some sort of tool for simplifying the development of EJB, although in certain cases appear more trouble than they are worth

Another one is EJBGen.
There are many graphical tools out there (e.g. Weblogic has a one).

I'm not sure if there's a graphical deployment tool in WLS 6.1 or not. There was in WLS 5 but it seemed to spend most of its time broken and I've always had the impression that they gave up on WLS6.
One of the aforementioned GUI tools is one I wrote (http://www.mousetech.com/EJBWizard.html) and it has a set of generator templates for a WLS EJB1.1 server such as 6.1.
While it's designed to generate the framework for the entire ejb, lock, stock and barrel, there's no problem with designing a copy of any existing EJB you might have and plundering it for the DD files.

You can edit descriptors with the admin console (WebLogic EJB Deployment Descriptor Editor). More powerful is certainly a tool like TogetherJ 6.
