Removing GlassFish plugin for Eclipse from java.net

UPDATED: Please check this blog for an updated message about the plugin

As I wrote in my last blogs, the official version of GlassFish plugin for Eclipse is distributed as part of OEPE product. On java.net we have been still delivering developer builds with bug fixes and enhancements. Now there are no more resources that could look after this channel so it was decided to bring it down. From now on there will be only official versions of GlassFish plugin available here on OEPE OTN site.

In future there may origin a channel for unofficial releases of plugin, probably as a part of OEPE OTN site. This will necessary for supporting new versions of GlassFish which will be available to public during development.

OEPE 12.1.1.2.2 with GlassFish Tools released

As you might noticed the Java EE 7 and GlassFish 4 were successfully released. To support them in Eclipse from day one OEPE team released the new version of Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse. You can find it on OTN or Eclipse Marketplace.

I would like to point out the new version of GlassFish Tools plugin  which is part of this release. It contains support for GlassFish 4 and new features of Java EE 7. Except these it has also some new features and many bugfixes. Just to name few:

  • Plugin now monitors the state of the server all the time so if the server is stopped/started outside of server you will observe it inside the Eclipse. Similarly you can see if some software (probably other GF installation) runs on the same ports that the server can't be started.
  • Better user experience when creating new runtime/server - the wizard is detecting and validating the actual version of selected GF runtime and you choose your own name for runtime.
  • New popup menu items that will open the server installation directory or domain directory in your default file browser.
  • Popup menu item View log now opens log file in text editor if the server is local.

Just a gentle reminder, if you used older versions of GlassFish Tools from OEPE bundle you need to follow this migration guide.

The new version of GlassFish Tools plugin (even newer then in OEPE including additional bugfixes) is also available on java.net update sites as part of pre-release developer stream. This stream will be continuously updated with other fixes/features which didn't make it into official release because of the time.  Hopefully you will enjoy it and leave us some feedback.
