Java EE 7 Early Support in NetBeans

As you are aware, Java EE 7 features have been rolling into GlassFish 4 promoted builds for a few months now. Keeping up with GlassFish, the good folks in the NetBeans team are beginning to put in early access features to Java EE 7 as well. Some of the features include:

  • Registering GlassFish 4
  • Creating Java EE 7 applications
  • Wizard for JAX-RS 2 Filters/Interceptors
  • Initial support for Faces Flow
  • Loading templates from a resource library
  • Non-persistent EJB timers in the Web profile
  • Wizard for WebSocket endpoints

We encourage you to start playing around with these features and providing the NetBeans team feedback. Arun Gupta talks about the features in fairly good detail here.
