Configuring and Starting the GlassFish Application Server
By Vince Genovese on Jul 27, 2007
Test Drive This Tutorial: Configuring and Starting the GlassFish Application Server
This "mini-tutorial" is planned for NetBeans 6.0 FCS Release.
This tutorial runs with NetBeans 6.0 Milestone 10 and later builds. Download Daily and latest builds for NetBeans 6.0 IDE.
The idea behind this tutorial is to isolate basic set-up instructions that are shared by many tutorials. These instructions can then be maintained in a single space. Other NetBeans tutorials will reference this tutorial in their basic set-up instructions. The user then will get the same set-up instructions throughout their tutorial experience.
Update1: It turns out that starting with Milestone 10, if the GlassFish Application Server is not running when you deploy an application, it will automatically start anyway. I've modified the tutorial accordingly. Changes are marked with change bars.
Update2: I've made additional changes based on comments I've received. Please review the comment thread. Any additional feedback is welcome!
