GlassFish Eclipse Integration available for 3.1.2

Bruno Borges
Principal Product Manager, Developer Engagement

This blog post from Vince is from December 2011, so it looks like we already have GlassFish 3.1.2 support on Eclipse for a long time.

We now have GlassFish 3.1.2 officially supported and integrated on Eclipse Indigo thanks to an update on the plugin, and specially thanks to Vince Kraemer, who did some code magic.

Recent changes in the GF 3.1.2 code did make it necessary to release a new version of the plugin, since users could not register recent builds by claiming that it was a 3.1.1 build any longer.
I just finished pushing an update that makes 3.1.2 an explicitly 'supported' run-time to address that issue.
I have also finished the work that Ludo started to convert the plugin to a Maven/Tycho based build.
This is the first release of the plugin that was built and pushed onto java.net via hudson jobs, thanks to the wonderful support of Jane Young.

You can read more about the update on Kraemer's blog post.

    One might get the impression Oracle is trying to discourage users from using GlassFish with Eclipse by not providing up-to-date information about the GlassFish Eclipse Plugin.

    The most recent plugin version for Eclipse Juno that I'm aware of can be installed from http://dlc.sun.com.edgesuite.net/glassfish/eclipse/juno.

    What should be an overview page pointing to all supported GlassFish and Eclipse versions is sadly outdated from 2009:


    Going by the GlassFish Plugins project home page, we seem to be stuck at GlassFish 3.1 and Eclipse Helios


    The GlassFish hits in the Eclipse Marketplace search are not up-to-date either:

    Hi Bruno,

    instead of hinting to the "old" 3.1 / 3.2 line of Glassfish why not give some insights about the new Glassfish 4.0 series? I mean JEE7 isn't too far away and I really would like to know what the guys did in all this time to it. Also when is a first Alpha/ Beta to be expectet, when is release scheduled?

    Regards KB

    GlassFish 4.0 plans are available at:


    Promoted builds are already available from:


    The Java EE 7 SDK is scheduled to be released in Q2 2013. There are plans to provide integration with NetBeans and Eclipse at that time.

    A production-quality GlassFish, with commercial support, will be available later this year.

    I am in the same boat as you. Now it seems that even http://dlc.sun.com.edgesuite.net/glassfish/eclipse/juno/ is dead. At some point I installed

    Oracle GlassFish Server Tools

    from that site (I think).

    Now I'm trying to help a coworker do it, but since that site is dead the only version we can find is

    Oracle GlassFish Server Tools

    It is very frustrating. Anyone know where I can report this?
