Event Details


In this presentation we will cover the tooling support of Java EE applications. One of the challenges of Java EE development is managing your project within an IDE. Most Java EE books talk about the different Java EE packaging schemes but often leave the actual setup to the reader. Setting up a project in an IDE can be a daunting job - you have to configure dependencies as well as create deployment descriptors and get everything packaged correctly. In addition you have to tackle unit tests and integration tests execution. Complicating matters, you must minimize cycle times for the developer so that they don’t spend most of their day waiting on builds. In this presentation we will cover Java EE project support provided by the major IDEs including Eclipse, IDEA, and NetBeans.
