Wrong, this is not a bug, this is part of application assembly/deployment.

The reason that orion does not wipe out the application-deployments files is
so that you can have different deployments of the same app in different
systems, with different table names perhaps or column names (just as an

For example, the list of disallowed fields is different across DB's, so if
you're using CMP, you might have a field called parent, which is sometimes
parent_ on some db's. Another example, you might have a db to which you do
not have exclusive write access, so in that particular deployment, you want
to turn off that flag.

Orion makes this possible by not destroying deployment specific files every
time you deploy something new. This means you can deliver updates to your
application and each particular deployment need not worry about your
shipping default settings clobbering their customisations. Makes sense?

The only caveat with this is that orion will NOT do merges between the
shipping and deployed file. So for example if you add a new bean, it's xml
fragment will not be picked up from your shipping orion-ejb.xml, since a
previous deployment already exists in application-deployments. In this case
you'd have to add in the bean manually to the deployed descriptor. Hope this
clears this issue up.

So please think carefully before deciding to scream out bug, or at least ask
