Resource creation as part of deployment
By cwebster on Oct 25, 2006
There is currently a glassfish enhancement (https://glassfish.dev.java.net/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=670) which supports the ability to package a resource file within an archive to support resource provisioning as part of deployment. This capability is currently available via command line, where resources can be provisioned by passing the file, but this requires a seperate step which can easily be forgotten. NetBeans 4.1 introduced the concept of zero configuration deployment where creating and interaction with EE concepts such as Message Driven Beans would create and provision the resources as part of the tooling work. This feature was great and improved the user experience; however, it would nice to have this feature be a first class capability of glassfish. If you agree, please vote for this glassfish enhancement above.
