JavaEE 5 (JSF + JPA + EJB3) using Eclipse

Today I will show you how to create Enterprise Application using Java EE 5 and GlassFish. I will use - Eclipse 3.5 + WTP - GlassFish v. 2.1 - JSF Mojarra implementation. - EJB 3.0. - JPA Toplink essentials implementation. - MySQL No NetBeans or JDeveloper magic involved :) The prerequirement is: Add datasource in glassfish. Read this how you can make this here: 1) First you need to add glassfish in your eclipse. - Go to Servers View - Right Click, New - Choose GlassFish v 2.1 if you dont have glassfish click on Download additional adapters link choose glassfish wait and restart eclipse. Than try again. 2) Create the database CREATE TABLE ` lesson ` . ` USERS ` ( ` id ` INTEGER UNSIGNED NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT, ` username ` VARCHAR ( 45 ) NOT NULL , ` password ` VARCHAR ( 45 ) NOT NULL , ` name ` VARCHAR ( 45 ) NOT NULL , PRIMARY KEY ( ` id ` ) ) ENGINE = InnoDB

I will show you how to create a DataSource in GlassFish version 2.1 because there were a lot of properties and I had a lot of problems when I've try to register datasource in glassfish for the first time. 1) You have to download JDBC driver for your database.

By default the username is 'admin' and the password is 'adminadmin' 5) go to Resources/JDBC/Connection Pools -First we will create a connection pool. Click the 'NEW' button -Than you must type: - Name: of the connection pool for example MySQL Lessson - Resource Type: javax.sql.ConnectionPoolDataSource - Database Vendor:
