I would appreciate, if anyone could point me an online documentation for the deployment descriptor.

Check out our SCWCD links.
There you will find a link to the DTD documentation as well as a really nice diagram that ersin has created that shows the DTD in graphical representation.
Good Luck.

Sun documents their end of the deployment but many appservers have their own deployment descriptors as well for linking the standardised ones with appserver specific things like JNDI resources and URIs.

I agree. Here's the link:
