Bonjour, comment Java?

Today is feature freeze date for NetBeans 6.0 Milestone 10, and here
are a few of the new features rolling in from the GlassFish's

  • GlassFish V1 and V2 support (download the server from href="">
  • new Sun specific deployment descriptors files GUI editors
  • Finally Java EE Application (EAR) exploded directory
    deployment (much faster to deploy). (Web Application directory
    deployment was there since NetBeans 4.1)
  • Unified DataSource definition and Registration
  • GlassFish V3 preview module available on NetBeans Udpate
  • jMaki plugin working for both Netbeans 5.5.x and NetBeans
    6.0 M10
  • Phobos plugins for both Netbeans 5.5.x and NetBeans 6.0 M10

Yesterday was also the WTP.2.0 Release Candidate 3 for Eclipse Java EE
5 support. A nice addition in this WTP 2.0 RC3 is the capability of
registering the GlassFish (v1, V2, or even V3) Application server
directly from the Eclipse 3.3: In the "New Server" dialog, you'll see a
"Download Additional Server Adapters" link. When you click on it, you
have the following choices:

If you add the recent
MyEclipse 5.5 support for GlassFish V2, you must admit that GlassFish
Java EE 5 server  has a very nice Tools coverage so far for
developers... Idea anybody?
