Don’t use Glassfish 3.1 with Netbeans 6.9.1
March 10, 2011 2 Comments
I’ve recently been notified by Glassfish update tool (one that is popping up in tray if you use Windows or that can be accessed from server admin console) that there are several updates available. Just hit OK and what you get is 3.0.1 to 3.1 update and no Netbeans integration. It’s even unable to start server so don’t even try to deploy anything.
So if you rely on Glassfish integration in Netbeans you have two options: Don’t do any updates for Glassfish (and don’t install any new modules, they are all in version 3.1 now) or switch to Netbeans 7.0 beta.
The good thing is that you only need to download old 3.0.1 from glassfish.java.net and unpack it somewhere to get back to work.
Pity that they haven’t done an update for stable Netbeans for latest Glassfish or some notification on server update, but 7.0 is so near (it should be ready in month or so, just check for yourself: Netbeans roadmap) that I doubt there will be any more patches for 6.9.
I’ll stick with Glassfish 3.0.1 till then…
Netbeans 7.0 is released and Glassfish 3.1 integration works seamlessly again. It’s really great.
