Clobbering of application.xml

Currently, if one has a j2ee application created that isn't fully managed by IDEA (eg, not all EJB modules are registered in IDEA, and I want to add enties manually to my app.xml), IDEA periodically clobbers the file and deletes all module entries from it.

This is completely disasterous and basically forces you to keep a backup of the file, to restore every time idea clobbers it.

In my opion, IDEA should ignore module entries that do not have an id=blah.iml attribute, and realise that those aren't managed by it.

I completely agree. It's especially painful when working with JBoss. To
access a EJB from a plain application, JBoss requires an application
client module. And since there's no such module type in IDEA it has to
be added manually - over and over again... :(
