I'm pleased to announce the release of JOnbAS.
JOnbAS is the server plug-in allowing JOnAS ( http://jonas.ow2.org/ )to be tightly integrated within the NetBeans IDE. It frees the developer from time-consuming, manual, and highly repetitive tasks, such as deploying or undeploying an application at each iteration).
The plugin supports JOnAS 4 and JOnAS 5 (using Tomcat as web container) and works with the latest versions of NetBeans (>= 6.5).
This plugin handles deployment and undeployment of NetBeans web projects, Enterprise Java Beans and Enterprise applications as easily as pushing a button. It is also able to manage JOnAS configuration (port number, ...).
JOnbAS includes several advanced functions:
* Java and JSP debugging
* Generating the default JOnAS deployment descriptors
(jonas-web.xml and jonas-ejb-jar.xml)
* Browsing deployed WAR, EJB and EAR modules
* Accessing WAR and Servlets web page from NetBeans
* Re-deploy an application when a project resource is modified.
Drastically reduce waiting time between development
