We were using nightly builds of NetBeans 6.5 at the time the book was being written and published, since that version of NetBeans wasn't out at the time. NetBeans developers must have changed the way to add business methods in an Enterprise Java Bean and the way to invoke an Enterprise JavaBeans' method from client code after the chapter was written and published. We have found an alternate way to obtain the same functionality that is explained as follows: The sentence: "However, when working with session beans in NetBeans, we can simply right-click on the bean's source code and select EJB Methods | Add Business Method" Should read as: "However, when working with session beans in NetBeans, we can simply right-click on the bean's source code and select Insert Code | Add Business Method."
Errata type: Technical | Page number: 272
The sentence: "We simply need to right-click on the client code (com.ensode.sessionbeanintro.Main in the application client project in our example) and select Enterprise Resources | Call Enterprise Bean."
Should read as:
"We simply need to right-click on the client code (com.ensode.sessionbeanintro.Main in the application client project in our example) and select Insert Code | Call Enterprise Bean."

Java EE, the successor to J2EE, greatly simplifies the development of enterprise applications. The popular IDE, NetBeans, has several features that greatly simplify Java EE development, and this book shows you how to make use of these features to make your Java programming more efficient and productive than ever before.
With many features and great flexibility, the Java developer can become overwhelmed by the options available in NetBeans, This book helps you get control of the environment, and make it work for you so that you can concentrate on the important parts of your application.
This book takes you through the most important parts of Java EE programming and, with clear, careful instructions and screenshots, shows you how to use the features of NetBeans that will improve your development experience. This book will not only show you time-saving tricks, keyboard shortcuts and other productivity enhancements possible with NetBeans, it will take you through the major Java EE APIs and how to get them working in the NetBeans environment.
While focusing on NetBeans features, you will learn about developing applications using the servlet API and JSPs, including taking advantage of JSTL and developing custom JSP tags. Developing applications that take advantage of JavaServer Faces is also covered in detail, including how to generate standard JSF applications from an existing database schema. The book also covers how to easily develop elegant JSF applications by taking advantage of the NetBeans Visual Web designer.
This book shows you how to use NetBeans functionality to automate many of the tedious or repetitive tasks frequently encountered when developing enterprise Java applications, freeing up the developer to focus on the business logic specific parts of the application.
This book takes you through the important parts of Java EE development and, with clear, careful instructions and screenshots, shows you the relevant features of the NetBeans IDE.
Who this book is for
The book is aimed at Java developers who wish to develop Java EE applications while taking advantage of NetBeans functionality to automate repetitive tasks and to ease their software development efforts. Familiarity with Java EE is not assumed.
