Hi,
In case of EJB3.0 -> Features ->
You are no longer required to create the EJB deployment descriptor files (such as
ejb-jar.xml). You can now use metadata annotations in the bean file itself to configure
metadata. You are still allowed, however, to use XML deployment descriptors if you want; in the case of conflicts, the deployment descriptor value overrides the annotation value.


I want to know the meanings of the sentence "the deployment descriptor value overrides the annotation value".
Because DD reads ejb-jar.xml at startup.........

Thank You.............

"Deployment descriptor value overrides annotation value" means that the deployment descriptor's values determines the applications configuration at runtime; the overriden annotation value is ignored.

Take the following example: If you specify in the deployment descriptor Then the assignments from the deployment descriptor apply. That means the name of the bean is "MyTestBean", not "TestBean" and the transaction attribute of doSomething is "Required" and not "SUPPORTS".
