what is dd wizard?
and in any case nb 5 also supports jboss support afaik, we just don't have a full bundle for it.
p.s. why don't you use nb5.5?
Thanks for the reply.
By dd wizard, I meant the wizard that can generate JBoss deployment descriptor (dd, eg. jboss.xml) while I am working on a J2EE 1.4 component in NetBeans 5.0. For example, when I add an MDB, the NetBeans 5.0 wizard would ask about the EJB name, implementation classes, destination type (queue/topic).... and the ejb-jar.xml is auto-generated based on those info.
I thought the "JBoss NetBeans IDE" would further ask things like JNDI name of the destination the MDB is listening on.... and then generate the jboss.xml. The current plugin for NetBeans 5.0 doesn't do this. Does the new version bundled with 5.5 provide this?
The reason why I am not using 5.5 is that we are in the middle of a production project, didn't want to introduce unnecessary complexities....
NetBeans 5.0 supports only the context-root field generation in jboss-web.xml DD. Unfortunatelly, additional features were added later, se below. I recommend to use NetBeans JBoss IDE or NetBeans 5.5 if it is possible.
JBoss NetBeans IDE supports jboss-web.xml and jboss.xml. It is not perfect but it is at least some help for the users working with the enterprise resources like data sources, EJBs, messaging. It can automatically create and register new data sources.
JBoss NetBeans IDE contains beta2 version of NetBeans 5.5, there are still some bugs in DD generation area, these bugs will be hopefully fixed in NetBeans 5.5.
NetBeans 5.5 will also support support application client (generation of jboss-client.xml).
