i was among the first ones to purchase your book in google as soon java EE came out in september, i wanted to know more about glassfish app server.how to deploy and other things... meanwhile as java newbie only regreat you didn't explained how to deploy glassfish app server in netbeans or eclipse.
I wanted to keep the book IDE agnostic, since using an IDE for the examples or providing IDE specific deployment instructions might discourage users of other IDEs from obtaining the book.
For that reason all examples an explanations in the book are IDE independent.
There is, however, an appendix on IDE integration at the end of the book.
To deploy any WAR/JAR/EAR file to GlassFish all you need to do is copy the file to the [GlassFish installation directory]/domains/domain1/autodeploy folder (assuming you are using the default domain called "domain1", otherwise substitute "domain1" with your domain's name).
