Really Useful Info On MetaData

Here are all the different meta data types in Salesforce. Why is this useful, because if you are wanting to deploy just a few fields by Eclipse, instead of just selecting the Object in Eclipse if you change the package.xml to below it will just deploy the specific fields you select

        <members>X__c.YYY__c</members> //X__c.YYY__c is object.field

Here is the complete list of types in an Objec, some of which can be deployed using Eclipse, ant or changesets separately from the Object

Unfortunately there are many things that cannot be deployed using Eclipse, ant or changesets which are listed below. Come on Salesforce some of these things are needed.
