I have moved to a new domain name for my blogs. This was necessary when I
could not find a way to sever the connection with www.sys-con.com. A few
years ago I agreed to have my blog articles reposted on their web site. They
promised a small cut on any advertising shown on my pages on their site. The
number of visits is impressive, over 136,000, yet I cannot detect any money
having come from them into my Adsense account. I suspect that the number is
wildly inflated. If you are an editor from sys-con then could you tell me
how to end our relationship.
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:
It is now one week since I upgraded my primary desktop system to Windows 7. I
had been an early adopter of Vista and had a number of problems, even an
occasional BSOD in the early days. I delayed putting Vista on my school
computer because it did not support Novell which is used at Dawson College
where I teach. Today I upgraded my school computer and I am fully integrated
into the Novell structure. Here is the what and why of what I did, part one.
My department at Dawson College subscribes to a program at Microsoft called
the MSDNAA that is a subset of the MSDN subscription progra... (more)
Performing this task will resolve a problem that occurs when using NetBeans
to configure a JDBC Connection Pool and JDBC Resource for GlassFish. The
default installation of NetBeans and GlassFish results in the naming of the
JDBC configuration file as sun-resources.xml when it should be named
glassfish-resources.xml. This is a Windows only problem.
The first step is to install NetBeans if you have not already done so. I
recommend the Java EE version. Download and install. All the defaults during
install are acceptable. Install GlassFish but it is not necessary to install
The NetBeans New File wizards greatly simplify writing boilerplate code. One
specific instance is the creation of JPA Controller Classes from an Entity
Classes. The class file, or files, written for you will contain all the basic
methods of JPA for CRUD operations on the entity or entities that you have.
The only small issue is that this class is written for a standalone
environment such as what you would find in an environment that does not
support Context Dependency Injection. To use this class in a GlassFish
environment or other container we have to make some minor changes.
