Java EE application descriptor correctness

Reports the following problems inside `application.xml` configuration files:

  • References to non-instantiable classes

  • References to classes that do not extend required class

  • References to classes with inappropriate scope

  • Tag and attribute values that do not match required pattern (for example, Java Identifiers)

  • Tags that do not include required children tags or attributes

  • Tags that define objects with duplicate names
