Response to: Deployment Descriptors vs. MetaData

The intent of the comparison was to use the proper terminology for the two technologies. You are right that conceptually there is little distinction between metadata and deployment descriptors.


But there is a difference in the volume of data needed to specify the deployment information for CMP versus the metadata for JDO, as well as the amount of data that can be defaulted (not specified at all).
