WildFly Simply Works in NetBeans IDE 8.0

Get a daily development build of NetBeans IDE 8.0 and then go to Tools | Plugins to install the WildFly plugin, created by some of our friends at Red Hat.

Here's the location of the daily development build:


Then you can deploy apps to WildFly from NetBeans IDE and see the deployed artifacts in the Servers node: 

Emmanuel Hugonnet, who's driving this effort inside Red Hat, reports that the WildFly plugin is currently almost as complete as the NetBeans support for GlassFish. Some work remains to be done on data sources, but in general the plugin is in good shape.


Thats great news. Will it be bundled into Netbeans to work out of the box?

Nope. But installing it via the Plugin Manager takes about 5 seconds or even less.

I installed the build Netbeans 8.0. However when I click on sub-menu items, of tools, nothing happens

Not sure what that sentence means, guest. You've not given many clues to help you either, e.g., no operating system, no JDK version. I suggest you remove the user directory and restart the IDE.

I downloaded NB8 Beta and WildFly 8.0.0.CR1 on Windows 8, installed the plugin, but when I try to start the server I get the message "WildFly Application Server Start Failed. Check whether the C:\jboss\wildfly-8.0.0.CR1\bin\standalone.bat script is executable." When I run the standalone.bat script via the command line, everything is fine.

Can you point me to where I could file a bug report on this?

I installed NetBeans 8b and WildFly 8 RC1 on Ubuntu 12.04 with JDK 7u51 and it's OK!

Wildfly registers, and I can start the server from inside the IDE, but then all communication is broken, I can't deploy, I can't explore the server navigator and I cant stop the server from inside the IDE, the log shows the server is started in the IDE and I can browse the server console . . .

Server: Wildfly 8.0.0-Final

Same problem

Posted by guest on February 19, 2014 at 06:35 AM PST #

found out that my NVidia graphics driver is using port 9990, the default management port for wildfly. Stopping that NVidia Management Service and restarting Wildfly did work. But that's not best practice?!

About the broken communication of the plugin with the server on a Mac:
It worked for me after I used "" instead of localhost during the setup of the server in Netbeans (Instance properties - Host).
