So far I have been very impressed with the EJB3.0 support in Netbeans 5.5. The more I use it the more I am impressed. I am having a couple of migration issues from Eclipse, like hotkey shortcuts I used regularly in Eclipse and having to find the equivalent, but on the whole, Netbeans 5.x is a very slick IDE.
I have been prototyping a EJB3.0 app and decided to give the ‘JSF pages from Entity Beans’ option a try. Wow, what a cool feature. I haven’t got into JSF yet, so this will give me a headstart. Select the Entity Bean from the wizard and it generates standard CRUD page functionality for the bean. Very cool.
I’m having a couple of issues deploying the app to JBoss 4.0.4RC1 so far though, and since I’m not familiar with JSF yet, I’m stuck for how to fix it, so I logged a bug on the NetBeans site.
74383: JSF from Entity Beans – does not deploy to JBoss – I’m getting a deployment error when my app is deployed to 4.0.4RC1. Not sure what this is about.
