Web Service Nodes of a GlassFish Server 3.1 instance

NetBeans has supported web service development for quite a while but... I always hit an issue when I develop web services clients that bothered me... I never knew the wsdl url for services that I had deployed. So, if I was creating a client for a web service, I would need to have the service's implementation project available OR I would need to fire up the admin gui to find out what the wsdl url is to complete either of these two dialogs:


The Add Web Service dialog


The Create Web Service Client dialog

I got tired of feeling stupid and opening the admin gui to lookup the wsdl url (or to run the 'tester'), so I started to look for a solution for folks that do web service development against GlassFish Server 3.1.... and here it is in a single screenshot:


Web services on a registered server exposed with
an action to test the service and
an action to copy the wsdl url to the clipboard

A special shoutout to Ludovic Champenois and Jitendra Kotamraju for exposing the data that I needed, restfully.

NOTE: To see these new nodes you will need to get a recent nightly build of NetBeans 6.10 that includes GlassFish Server 3.1 build 20 or higher (or a post September 9, 2010 nightly build of GlassFish Server 3.1)

View Server Log for remote instance

NetBeans has supported deployment onto remote GlassFish for a long time.

There is a new feature into today's dev build that improves that feature significantly. Users can see the log for remote GlassFish Server 3.1 instances

The log view window can be opened using the 'View Server Log' menu item, that is in the instance's right-click menu in the Services explorer, if the remote server is running.

The log view will open automagically when you deploy a project to a remote GlassFish Server 3.1 instance, too.

Notice: only the restart tool is available

This feature is built on top of the view-log request that is part of the RESTful interface for GlassFish Server 3.1. Ludo did the heavy lifting for this feature in that module.

Restart a remote instance of GlassFish Server

While I was preparing the plan for the GlassFish Server 3.1 integration plugin for NetBeans, I ran into something that I had overlooked in the GlassFish Server documents...

The plugin has supported local domain restart 'forever', but this new capability had not been exposed in the IDE... until a couple days ago.

If you register a remote domain in recent dev builds of NetBeans, you will see that the 'Restart' action is enabled.
