Is Eclipse Faster than Netbeans for Arquillian Testing on a Remote GlassFish
Server? Part 2
While putting my test code up on GitHub and writing the readme.md, I ran my
NetBeans test code on my 2011 early MacBook Pro.
To my surprise the times for both embedded and remote testing were between 25
and 35 seconds.
My original blog was based on working on a much much faster Windows 8.1
system that took 16 seconds for embedded but 100 seconds for remote. So I
guess we blame:
Microsoft Windows 8.1 Java on Windows
You can download the Eclipse version of the code at:
and the NetBeans version at:
Some very bright people will be looking at the code and hopefully they will
have an explanation for why remote server testing on Windows 8.1 performs so
Setting up a Maven project in NetBeans for the purpose of JEE 6 is simpler
than Eclipse. I also had a goal of creating a project that will work in
NetBeans and Eclipse when loaded from a Subversion repository. Here then are
the steps necessary to create a Maven project in NetBeans. See the end of the
post to learn how to move projects back and forth between NetBeans and
Before you install NetBeans you must have Java installed. You must choose
between a 32 and 64 bit version of this download. Here is a recent article on

Create a project based on my blog “UPDATED Setting up a JEE 6 Web Profile
Maven Project in Eclipse using TomEE”.
Eclipse reveals its special capabilities such as specialized editors based on
the project’s facet. As it now stands the project you just created will
allow you to create Servlet/JSP applications. You need to add the JavaServer
Faces facet to the project.
Right-mouse click on the project and select Properties and then select
Project Facets. You will see:
You now need to add the JavaServer Faces facet version 2.1, change the Java
version to 1.7 and unchec... (more)
With the installation complete it was time to test the critical software I
use daily. The first was Microsoft Outlook and as I expected it worked
perfectly. So did the rest of the Office suite.
Next on my list were the Java environments that I use, Eclipse and NetBeans.
First I checked at java.sun.com for newer versions of Java and found a new
release 1.6 r15. I downloaded both the 32 bit and 64 bit versions. I
uninstalled the version I currently had, 1.6 r13, and then installed the new
versions. I installed the 32 bit version first followed by the 64 bit
version. Going to a com... (more)
This is an update to the blog post of just a few days ago. Never to leave
well enough alone I have continued examining how to use Maven effectively in
Eclipse. As such I have discovered some unneeded steps and some new details.
Without the excess wording this time here are the instructions.
Download and install (unzip into the folder of your choice) the Eclipse IDE
for Java EE Developers from http://eclipse.org . The version, as of this
writing, is 4.3.1. Since the introduction of version 4.3, also known as
Kepler, the m2eclipse plugin for Maven is part of the distribution.... (more)
