parse to introduce deployment metadata has any affect on a programmatic deployment.
Because the structural deployer is not invoked if I tell it explicitly what the
structure of the ear is. It is also not invoked if I add a META-INF/jboss-structure.xml
Describing the structure programmatically is just a case of adding the
structure metadata equivalent of META-INF/jboss-structure.xml to the deployment.
1) Is there is a predetermined StructureMetadata attachment?
2) Is there a META-INF/jboss-structure.xml
3) Is it an EAR - EARStructure.
Only if (1) and (2) fail will the EARStructure get invoked.
So in summary you can't assume that a structural deployer will be invoked.
It shouldn't do anything other than creating structure (and only then
when it is invoked because there isn't an explicit structure).
