With Java EE 5, you don't need deployment descriptors for simple web applications. DD's are optional. But, I can't imagine a web application without a deployment plan. Most of the XML related stuff is done using Java language annotations. Annotations are a part of AOP and help in generating the boilerplate code which is tredious to write.
