      This is taken from section 8.3.1 of the spec.

      "4.(Optional) Create an XML deployment descriptor for the application.
      The deployment descriptor must be named application.xml and must reside in the top level of the META-INF directory of the application .ear file. The deployment descriptor must be a valid XML document according to the XML schema for a Java EE:application XML document. (Alternatively, the deployment descriptor may meet the requirements of previous versions of Java EE.)
      Many applications that follow the conventions described below will not need a deployment descriptor for the application. The deployment tool will determine
      the components of the application using some simple rules."
