I am running Eclipse with OEPE 220.127.116.11 and want to build an ADF Essentials application for GlassFish.
I have GlassFish installed into Eclipse (GlassFish Server Open Source Edition 3 (Java EE 6)) and running.
I have installed ADF Essentials as instructed in FMW Admin Guide 18.104.22.168 appendix C (copied jars to lib directory of domain, set JVM parameters).
Now when I try to create an ADF Application in Eclipse, I cannot create a GlassFish target runtime. The only options I see are WebLogic 10.3.4, 10.3.5 and 10.3.6.
The "Download additional server adapters" link doesn't give me any GlassFish options.
How do I set up a GlassFish ADF Essentials runtime environment in Eclipse? Any pointers appreciated.

The version of OEPE you are using supports ADF 11g applications that can be deplyed to Weblogic Server. It doesn't support deployment of ADF applications to GlassFish and also doen't support the ADF Essentials version of ADF. These are planned for an upcoming release of OEPE.
Is the ADF application you would like to build/deploy a pure ADF Faces application or does it include ADF TaskFlow, ADF DataControls and ADF Binding?
I am planning on writing an book on application development with ADF Essentials and OEPE (to be published by Packt), so I want to cover the whole stack (Faces, TaskFlows, DataControls and bindings).
The combination of ADF Essentials, GlassFish and Eclipse seems obvious to me. Do you have any idea on a timeline when such a combination would be possible?
I have the GlassFish server tools, but that does not give me the possibility to create an ADF application for GlassFish.
Have you successfully created an ADF Essentials/GlassFish application in OEPE? If so, I'd love to know how you did it.
The support for ADF Essentials is planed for the 2013 calendar year. We can't share a more specific timeline than that. Please note that we are currently working on that feature and it is possible that we have a Tech. preview release in near term.
We do like the idea of a book on ADF development in OEPE and would do our best to facilitate you in your effort.
