TOTD #165: Eclipse Indigo, Java EE 6 and GlassFish

Eclipse Indigo Logo
46 millions lines of code committed by 408 developers from 49 organizations is the recipe for Indigo, the sixth release as part of the Eclipse annual release train. The key features of this release are:
  • EGit 1.0 enabling Git support
  • WindowBuilder, a GUI Builder
  • Jubula for automated functional testing for Java and HTML
  • EclipseLink 2.3 with support for multi-tenant JPA entities
  • Equinox 3.7 with OSGi 4.3 specs

Read the complete list of improvements here and download now!

An updated version of the GlassFish plugin is also pushed to the update center and can be downloaded by clicking on "Additional Server Adapters" and selecting GlassFish as shown below:



Couple of much needed improvements in the plugin are:
  1. Configurable "Preserve Sessions across Re-deploys" by double-clicking on the server properties:



    This property could only be configured during server registeration in earlier versions.

  2. Richer management of GlassFish from within the IDE such as viewing all the resources (JDBC, Connectors, and JavaMail) as shown below:



The screencast #36 shows complete Java EE 6 development using GlassFish and the video is  embedded here for convenience:
