I'm totally new to Sun Java System Application Server and I'm try to let it work with netbeans. Unfortunately I've failed at the first step: configure the server with netbeans.
When I try to add a new server, I select one from the list (the closer option is the Application Server 8.2), but in field to fill in the path of the application, it says as soon as enter the path:
-- Server Location is not an "Sun Java System Application Server 8.2" location --
And the button to go forward is not highlighted.
I've obviously try then with the version 8.2. Same error.
I've tried on linux (ubuntu, java6), OS X 10.5 (java6)
I've then tried to add a custom directory for tomcat 6 and for glassfishV2 and they both works!
I've also noticed that the " Sun Java System Application Server 9.1" comes with the latest release of netbeans and still it doesn't appear in the list of the server.
Any help would be really appreciated.
Have you tried to use "GlassFish v2.x" from the list instead of "Application Server 8.2"? SJS AS 9.1 and GlassFish v2 should be the same.
Please, check http://wiki.glassfish.java.net/Wiki.jsp?page=GlassFishFAQ#section-GlassFishFAQ-WhatIsTheDifferenceBetweenSunOneSJSASAndGlassFish
Actually, I'm not sure whether it is a bug. For example, SJSAS 8.2 doesn't support Java EE 5 so when an user select it from the list for a SJSAS 9.2 instance which is GlassFish v2 in fact with Java EE 5 support, the IDE should protest.
