Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Have developed Task Flows using ADF and now planning to integrate those with WebCenter Portal.
While reviewing the recommendations for doing so you find the following recommended practice.

Fusion Middleware Developing Portals with Oracle WebCenter Portal and Oracle JDeveloper
55 Developing Components for WebCenter Portal Using JDeveloper
Table 55-5 Developing and Deploying ADF Libraries and Shared Libraries for WebCenter Portal

"Including descriptors
Descriptors in custom shared libraries, such as web.xml and application.xml, merge with corresponding descriptors deployed with the WebCenter Portal application.
To avoid corrupting your WebCenter Portal installation, Oracle recommends that you do not include descriptor files in your custom shared libraries."

The application was written to require descriptor elements which need to be defined to allow the proper deployment.
Where should the descriptors be defined?
