*Enterprise Edition (Java EE) 8**- The Java EE Tutorial with Netbeans IDE


However, the current version of NetBeans does not support Java EE 8 out of the box. To prepare the whole Java EE 8 development, you need to upgrade the application server to a Java EE 8 compliant version, such like GlassFish 5, or Payara 5 as well.

Just pick "Java EE 7 version", and let NetBeans doing the auto-generating all necessary files afterwards, and then *manually* edit the location of XML schema resources <http://www.oracle.com/webfolder/technetwork/jsc/xml/ns/javaee/index.html#8> as follow:

|- Servlet 4.0  in web.xml

- JSF 2.3 faces-config.xml

... and versions yourself in the desired deployment descriptor files.

        Hello All,

        Just upgraded to Netbeans 8.2 and Java EE Base plug-in is
        1.31.1 as I
        recall.  Attempting to get support for Java EE 7 or 8. 
        Netbeans stated
        I needed to upgrade to support string comparisons in a switch

        After the upgrades I am still limited to Java EE 6.  It does
        show Java
        EE 7 for a GlassFish server, but not EE 8.  When I select
        Tomcat it
        drops back to 6 and 5 again.  Tomcat is what I need to
        support.  Our
        Tomcat server is running 8.5.23 and JVM version 1.8.

        So how I am suppose to upgrade to 7 or 8?

        I suspect there are others that have done this before.  As for
        me I am
        just starting in the Java world.

        Thank you,
