VirtualBox development images - NetBeans/JavaEE/GlassFish combo
By alexismp on Dec 07, 2010
Over at the OTN blog, Justin Kestelyn announced that three development environments were made available as VirtualBox images (appliances) and loaded with all the software you need to get started the moment you log into the system.
These images include : SOA & BPM Development, Database App Development and Java Development.
The Java development image (2.6GB from this page) is very based on the image built for the recent OTN Java Developer Days (delivered in some 30+ countries worldwide with three hands-on labs). It uses Oracle Linux version 5, JDK 6, Java FX 1.3.1, NetBeans IDE 6.9.1, and GlassFish Server Open Source Edition 3.0.1. This is everything you need to get started with Java EE 6 development and you'll even find three labs (with code and instructions) to start using JSF 2, JAX-RS 1.1, EJB 3.1, Servlet 3.0, JPA 2.0 and CDI 1.0!
