Java EE 6 running sample Pet Catalog

Last Friday I bought The Java EE 6 Tutorial: Basic Concepts (4th Edition) (Java Series) ( for revision.

The bad thing are

1. The source code of the book cannot be downloaded.

2. The book is asking you to use NetBean and not Eclipse.

I ended installing NetBean and got the Pet Catalog example to try. You can do that by choosing File -> New Project… -> Samples.


The sample will automatically downloaded into your local drive. Something tricky in the setup instruction.

You cannot setup the JDBC resources in NetBean.


You need go to GlassFish Admin Console if order to add the JDBC Connection Pools and JDBC Resources.



My personal opinion. NetBean IDE is friendlier than Eclipse. At least there are many samples you can download from the NetBean IDE itself.
