GlassFish 3.1 and NetBeans 6.10

The next version of NetBeans is 6.10 (Release Roadmap).   NB 6.10 has support for the GlassFish 3.1, and the two schedules (NB 6.10, GF 3.1) are aligned which means our tools folks are extra busy, and Vince has been documenting his new additions through a series of posts in his blog.

The builds to use with the posts are NB 6.10 M1 - released at the end of August - or the nightly builds.

Here is the current list - I'll try to update the list as Vince adds entries:

Initial Support for GlassFish Server 3.1
   Kickoff of the series.  Integration plan into NetBeans 6.10 is described in the NetBeans Wiki Page
Restart a remote instance of GlassFish Server
   Support for the restart-domain command works with remote domains
New Enable and Disable actions for deployed apps
   Two additional actions for applications deployed onto GlassFish Server instances: Enable and Disable.
Restart a remote server in debug mode
   UI now leverages the new support for restarting a server in debug mode with a single command.
View Server Log for remote instance
   Users can see the log for remote GlassFish Server 3.1 instances
Supporting glassfish-resources.xml
   New name and new content GlassFish Server 3.1 builds integrated into NetBeans dev builds   As the title says - now integrated!
Create domains that use the default ports
   New feature?  Or bug fix?
Web Service Nodes of a GlassFish Server 3.1 instance
   Quick way to get the URL to the WSDL for services deployed in NB
IDE Feature, now available from the command-line
   Support for the new Application Scoped Resources (Spec, Screencast)

As you can see, good progress!
