Subject A session I presented at ApacheCon on J2EE App development using Eclipse
Date Thu, 10 May 2007 08:50:03 GMT
At the recently held ApacheCon Europe 2007 in Amsterdam I had an opportunity
to speak on "J2EE Application Development on Apache Geronimo Simplified
using Eclipse". I have added the session material in our wiki (in case some
one finds it useful):
. Please feel free to move it to a more appropriate location.

Session material can also be downloaded from here:

A few observations I made as a User of Geronimo Eclipse Plug-in:
1) Downloading Geronimo Eclipse Plugin from within the IDE (by clicking on
the "Don't see your server listed?" or by creating a new remote site in the
update manager) is too slow.

It would save a lot of time if I can simply download a zip of Geronimo
Eclipse Plug-in say from to the way I
can download zips of most Eclipse Plug-ins from provides one such
facility for downloading latest version of the plug-in, but not the earlier

2) It's very tedious and erroneous to create Geronimo Deployment Plans by
hand. It would have helped a lot if Geronimo Development Tools provided some
good editors/wizards for auto creating & editing Geronimo Deployment Plans.

I started doing some work w.r.t 2) above, but later got confused with
Annotations and the probable new ways of approaching Geronimo 2.0 Deployment
Plans with Annotations.

If someone can clarify Community's plans towards Geronimo 2.0 Deployment
Plans, I can do something about Eclipse editors/wizards for Geronimo
Deployment Plans.
