New GlassFish Integration Feature: XML Multiview editor for deployment descriptor editing

In my New GlassFish Integration Features screencast, I touched on this, but it went by very quickly.

In earlier releases of NetBeans, the vendor specific deployment descriptor was "managed" by leveraging JSR-88. Some of this management spilled into the editing experience for these descriptors. It was significantly different than the editing experience for the "standard descriptor".

Here is a screen shot of the XML multi-view descriptor editor for the ejb-jar.jar file.

The editor for the associated sun-ejb-jar.xml was radically different.

In the NetBeans 6.0 release, we finally bit the bullet and threw out most of the "management" aspects of JSR-88. This has allowed us to create an editing experience for the sun-ejb-jar.xml file that is similar to the experience for the standard, ejb-jar.xml editor.

This screen shot is from the same project as the previous image, but shows the editor from NetBeans 6.0.
