          hi ittoronto....hi don't know a automatic tool to create a deployer but it's enought create a standard mbean that extends the class org.jboss.deployer.SubDeployerSupport and implements the interface org.jboss.deployer.SubDeployer. You can to create a .sar package with your deployer classes, un jboss-service.xml under the directory META-INF and then deploy it

              Yup, I asked the same question a while ago. The JBoss plugin for Eclipse does the job, maybe not in the wisiwyg way that other platforms provide, but it works and it's free. It uses XDoclet tags to do most things, and the templates fill in the fields for you and the xml comes out of the other end pretty much unaided. Only when you do unusual or more advanced stuff do you need to understand what the tags do and which extra ones you need to do what you want. Give it a go - if I can understand it, anyone can :-)
