Create a project based on my blog “UPDATED Setting up a JEE 6 Web Profile
Maven Project in Eclipse using TomEE”.
Eclipse reveals its special capabilities such as specialized editors based on
the project’s facet. As it now stands the project you just created will
allow you to create Servlet/JSP applications. You need to add the JavaServer
Faces facet to the project.
Right-mouse click on the project and select Properties and then select
Project Facets. You will see:
You now need to add the JavaServer Faces facet version 2.1, change the Java
version to 1.7 and uncheck JAX-RS. It should now look like:
The version of TomEE, 1.6.0, that I am using does not yet have JSF 2.2 in its
library. Its current version is 2.1. If you need to use 2.2 then there is a
beta version of the library available as of this writing.

Amazon EC2 Session at Cloud Expo New York
I received an Amazon Kindle for Xmas. It wasn’t a surprise as I put it on
the Xmas list my family insisted I provide. My wife had me order it with her
credit card to make sure it was exactly what I wanted. The order was placed
at the beginning of December to ensure it would arrive on time. It took just
four days to arrive here in Montreal from Amazon in the US.
Originally I had the Sony PRS-600 reader on my list. I made the list in
mid-November and the Kindle was not available in Canada. But at the end of
November Amazon announced it would... (more)

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)
With the installation complete it was time to test the critical software I
use daily. The first was Microsoft Outlook and as I expected it worked
perfectly. So did the rest of the Office suite.
Next on my list were the Java environments that I use, Eclipse and NetBeans.
First I checked at java.sun.com for newer versions of Java and found a new
release 1.6 r15. I downloaded both the 32 bit and 64 bit versions. I
uninstalled the version I currently had, 1.6 r13, and then installed the new
versions. I installed the 32 bit version first followed by the 64 bit
version. Going to a com... (more)
