In most of the examples in this topic, we will be using
GlassFish as the application server. NetBeans 7.0 bundles both
GlassFish and Tomcat. In the above screenshot we selected
GlassFish in the server drop down.
Clicking the Next> button takes us to the next page in the wizard.
Developing web applications using nothing but servlets and JSPs typically results
in having to code a lot of repetitive functionality "by hand". Several web application
frameworks have been developed over the years to automate a lot of the repetitive
functionality. JavaServer Faces ( JSF ) is the standard web application framework for
Java EE. It is covered in detail in Chapter 4 .
For this particular application we will not be using any framework, we should click
on the Finish button to create our new project.
At this point NetBeans creates a simple, but complete Java web application. The
newly created project contains a single JSP, that is automatically opened in the
NetBeans editor. Since the project is a complete Java web application, we can deploy
it immediately, we can do so by right clicking on the project name and selecting Run
from the resulting pop up menu.
