Use of pre-existing EclipseLink ORM and OXM mappings

A DBWS service may be constructed using pre-existing EclipseLink ORM and OXM maps (both Project classes and Project deployment XML are supported) with the following naming convention:

identical case-sensitive aliases for Descriptors that are common between the projects
<class-mapping-descriptor xsi:type="relational-class-mapping-descriptor">
  <class>some.package.SomeClass</class>
  <alias>SomeAlias</alias>
  ...
<class-mapping-descriptor xsi:type="xml-class-mapping-descriptor">
  <class>some.package.SomeClass</class>
  <alias>SomeAlias</alias>

Any existing named queries from the EclipseLink ORM map may be exposed as query operations for the EclipseLink DBWS service; additional Insert/Update/Delete/Query operations can be added. Pre-existing domain classes can be bundled with the service so that they are available at runtime.
