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 program for commercial
developers. This gave me access to Windows 7 on August 6th. The first
decision I had to make was whether to do an upgrade or a clean install.
In the days of DOS 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 an upgrade involved replacing the hard
disk boot code and creating a new directory for the DOS ... (more)
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 unchec... (more)
As part of my class preparation I have been writing blog entries on setting
up a JEE 6 web profile Maven projects in Eclipse and in NetBeans using the
TomEE server. Once I got that working I proceeded to try out a tutorial from
Eclipse called the JSF Tools Tutorial – JSF 2.0 that is found in the
Eclipse help system.
Create a new project based on my previous blog “Creating JavaServer Faces
Maven Managed Projects with Eclipse” and not as described in the tutorial.
Jump to the section entitled “Create Facelets template pages”. At this
step you are instructed to create a New Facelet... (more)
Is Eclipse Faster than Netbeans for Arquillian Testing on a Remote GlassFish
Server? Part 2
While putting my test code up on GitHub and writing the readme.md, I ran my
NetBeans test code on my 2011 early MacBook Pro.
To my surprise the times for both embedded and remote testing were between 25
and 35 seconds.
My original blog was based on working on a much much faster Windows 8.1
system that took 16 seconds for embedded but 100 seconds for remote. So I
guess we blame:
Microsoft Windows 8.1 Java on Windows
You can download the Eclipse version of the code at:
Step 1: Download and install WampServer
Download the latest version of WAMP from here.
As of this writing the current version is 2.0h dated 04/16/09 and file you
will download is called WampServer2.0h.exe
Run the file WampServer2.0h.exe
You will be asked to agree to the software license, approve the choice of
directory, select the default browser, and decide if you want a desktop
and/or quick launch icon. For the directory the default is c:\wamp but you
may change to whatever you like. In later steps in this document it will be
assumed you selected c:\wamp so change this to your ... (more)
