GlassFish Support in Eclipse 3.3 Europa

Eclipse Europa

Eclipse 3.3 Europa is now final and supports configuring GlassFish V1, V2 and V3 using pluggable adapters for WTP 2.0 which now supports Java EE 5 development. From the GlassFishPlugins project at

This adapter is Java EE 5 compliant and works with GlassFish V1, V2, V3, and supports all EE 5 features of Eclipse 3.3, and supports Web application directory deployment, and fully integrated debugger.

Read a detailed writeup, with screenshots, from Ludo on how to configure the adapter, deploy a Web application and debug a JSP page on GlassFish V2 - all from within Eclipse Europa. The writeup can also be watched as a screencast and additionally shows how to deploy a JAX-WS based Web service using the Deployment Descriptor-free Web services deployment.

GlassFish and Eclipse relationship can be tracked in Earlier Posts at TheAquarium.

JAX-WS is a short name for Java API for XML Web services. This is the standard way to create Web services in Java platform. More details can be tracked at:

JAX-WS 2.0 is in a sense (JAX-RPC 1.1).next. The main reasons why it is called JAX-WS instead of JAX-RPC are two: it is less "RPC" centric, and it now fully delegates XML Data Binding to JAXB (2.0). JAX-WS 2.0 is a significant improvement over JAX-RPC 1.1 and it exploits annotations directly, and also via JAXB 2.0. Give it a try! - eduard/o

Installing the GlassFish support in windows doesn't seem to work. Tried on two machines both with Eclipse Europa J2EE and Eclipse Europa SDK with WTP manually installed. I'm able to pick GlassFish from the adapter and it seems to install but when eclipse restarts it doesn't appear in the server list. If I try to download it again it doesn't appear in that list either. It puzzles me that I can't find anything about this problem.

Try starting with eclipse -clean

Thank you Arun .Now I know What is JAX-WS .

Riise, I was puzzled by this problem as well but when I scrolled up in the list of all the adapters, GlassFish was available there. As Alexis said, try "eclipse -clean" or re-installing Eclipse.

eclipse -clean worked for me. Thanks!

To bad the plugin doesn't recognize that Glassfish-V1 is EJB 3.0 capable ! (only 1.1, 2.0 and 2.1 are available in the EJB Module facet).

Zart, this sounds like a bug to me. But you should really be using GlassFish v2 by now. Lots of things improved over v1.

Bug fixed with v 1.0.1 of the plugin. Try it again, Ludo
