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: https://github.com/omniprof/JPAJSFGlassFish03Eclipse and the NetBeans version at: https://github.com/omniprof/JPAJSFGlassFish03NetBeans 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 badly. ...

Setting up a JEE 6 Web Profile Maven Project in NetBeans using TomEE

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 Eclipse. Step 1 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 this subject: http://www.javacodegeeks.com... (more)

Creating JavaServer Faces Maven Managed Projects with Eclipse

Step 1 Create a project based on my blog “UPDATED Setting up a JEE 6 Web Profile Maven Project in Eclipse using TomEE”. Step 2 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)

Upgrading to Windows 7 – Part Two

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)

UPDATED Setting up a JEE 6 Web Profile Maven Project in Eclipse using TomEE

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. Step 1: 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)
