    New deployer stages

    Adrian Brock Master

      I've added three new deployer stages.

      POST_PARSE

      Some people are still doing processing in the Parsing Deployer which doesn't get
      invoked if the metadata is predetermined.
      You can use a POST_PARSE deployer to do this extra work
      (regardless of where the metadata came from).

      PRE_DESCRIBE

      This is mainly just for setting the default classloading rules.

      PRE_REAL

      We discussed the possiblity of this on a different thread.
      It basically allows the construction of two stage real deployers
      like the two stage classloading.

      i.e. PRE_REAL determines what dependencies should be satisifed
      before the deployment moves to the REAL stage.

      In practice the PRE_REAL is just a hack, since these dependencies
      should be defined on the POJOs rather than the deployments if you've done
      it properly. But it should allow the temporary/partial fixing of some problems
      until it is fixed properly.
