Basically DD contains the following:
1. Bean class name
2. Remote Interface name
3. Home interface name
4. Whether ur bean is stateless or stateful (for session)
5. Session Timeout
DD isnothing but giving the relevant info abt the ejb u hv written so that when a third party buys it, they can easily customize it according to their reqmnt.
For detailed expln u can consult "Mastering EJB" by Ed Roman, available at ""
Hope some clarification
