I used to create 1.4 EARs. There in the deployment descriptor editor I had a bunch of tabs including "Module","Security" and "Deployment".
Now when I create a new EAR in version 5.0, the editor only has two tabs "design" and "source". Is there an option to enable the advanced tabs again?

Found the partial answer by my self:
In the JavaEE-Perspektive, go to the Enterprise Explorer view. Right-click on the EAR-Folder and select JavaEE -> Open WAS Deployment
There you can at least find the trusty old "Deployment tab", which I actually needed.

Peter,
I'm a step behind you, even. I can't find the deployment descriptor editor! Is there something special I have to do to enable it for an WAS v7.0 J2EE 5.0 ear project?

Ok, so your on RAD 7.5 and have an 5.0 EAR, which is targeted for WAS 7, right?
Your in the right perspective and your in the right view? And there is no such submenu JavaEE -> Open WAS Deployment ?

RAD v7.5.5
JEE 5.0
targetting WAS v7.0
JavaEE -> Open WAS Deployment does indeed open the "Enhanced Ear" editor.
It is the basic EAR DD editor that I cannot seem to open. The one that this thread referred to as having only Design / Source tabs.

Daaah. It doesn't appear that an EAR DD is generated by default for a new WAS v7.0 project. Java EE -> Generate Deployment Descriptor Stub will generate the application.xml file. Afterwards, the EAR DD editor will launch.

Is there a change in the JEE 5.0 spec that makes the application.xml optional?

Sorry if I've wasted anyones time.

Thanks.

Oh I see, good addition. I hope that helps others, reading this later on.
