Java EE Tools

Rearrangement of the toolbar in the Java EE perspective

    The old toolbar section of five buttons for invoking the Java EE project wizards is now replaced by two pulldown buttons:
    • for invoking the Java EE project wizards (Web, EJB, EAR, etc.)
    • for invoking the Java EE artifact wizards (Servlet, Session Bean, etc.)


    Old arrangement:

EJB Tools

EJB 3.0 Session Bean wizard

    A new wizard is introduced for generating EJB 3.0 Session Bean classes and interfaces. The following features can be highlighted:
    • Metadata is injected as Java annotations in the source code instead of described in the ejb-jar.xml deployment descriptor.
    • Optionally, Local and Remote Business interfaces can be generated.
    • Optionally, Home and Component interfaces can be generated for backward compatibility with the EJB 2.x specification.
