I added this feature to the GenericDeploymentTool some time ago. One issue 
remained: if you chose to use the naming convention, a changed 
manifest-files would not be detected by the dependency checks. There would 
be no rebuild, if only manifest files changed.

At least on linux and windows 2k .. I did not test it on other platforms.
The automatical 'ejbdeploy' did only work for me, if I used the ibm-jdk. 
otherwise ibm's rmic throws a ClassFormatError, that complains about a 
bad UTF8-String constant in the class' constant pool.
