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 uncheck JAX-RS. It should now look like: The version of TomEE, 1.6.0, that I am using does not yet have JSF 2.2 in its library. Its current version is 2.1.

Performing this task will resolve a problem that occurs when using NetBeans to configure a JDBC Connection Pool and JDBC Resource for GlassFish.

My First Day at Stanford Learning to Program the iPhone

Before the registrar at Stanford writes me a cease and desist letter, let me state that I am not a student at Stanford. Rather I have downloaded the 17 lectures and 3 supplemental sessions of the CS193P course entitled iPhone Application Development from Open Stanford. According to an article published on the Stanford web site (http://news.stanford.edu/news/2009/may20/million-052009.html) there have been more than a million downloads of the videos and course material. This course ran from April 1, 2009 till June 8, 2009. You can get the course material in a number of ways. At th... (more)
