TomEE+, Apache CXF, and Maven in NetBeans 8

Geertjan Wielenga
Product Manager

The most interesting thing about the awesomeness shown in the (silent) YouTube clip below is that everything you see in it is 100% free and supported out of the box, without needing to install plugins of any kind, in NetBeans 8:


It is also very easy to see above that everything, from registering TomEE+ to creating a Maven application to deploying the app and making changes and seeing those changes live takes about 4 minutes in total.

Thanks to Stepan Zebra from the NetBeans team for providing the steps for this YouTube clip and Ken Fogel for asking for them.

    And openEJB, the origin and heart of Tomee, is a really light weight, capable EJB container. Now that it is incorporated with Tomcat we can do EJB thru websockets! Talk about distributed computing, that is the ultimate in my not-so-humble opinion! For those who don't want the "features" of websockets Tomee allows to use the http upgrade feature to connect java clients directly with the EJB container. Tomee is definitely underrated, under talked about, under promoted and under used. Most people on the site (in the fora) appear not to know about Netbeans. Here's hoping that is on the road to change!
