I would like to remove the Web Deployment Descriptor API from the standard
distribution of NetBeans 5.5:
This API was deprecated (it is not listed in the API list for NB 5.0), and
replaced by the J2EE deployment descriptor API, which handles all J2EE
deployment descriptors (not just web tier):
Currently we are not aware of any clients that use the deprecated web dd API.
Done, per issue 71288. Marking as a duplicate of that issue.
