    Is the metadata/type-mapping in -ds.xml really optional?

      I see that the metadata/type-mapping is optional in -ds.xml and the defaults/datasource-mapping is also optional in standardjboss-cmp.xml.

      Looking at the code the type-mapping is obtained from one of these 3 places.
      1. user defined in jbosscmp-jdbc.xml
      2. defaults/datasource-mapping in standardjboss-cmp.xml
      3. TypeMappingMetaData from the datasource metadata mbean.

      If 2 and 3 are optional and the user does not define 1 how is the type-mapping obtained?

      Also without the metadata/type-mapping in -ds.xml the TIMERService doesn't start up.
