Status?

Alright, I'm a little bit lost.

Is the j2ee support a prototype, or is this the form it'll take in the final release in 8 weeks?

For one thing, it seems to force you to create weblogic specific stuff when you want to create a j2ee app, rather than the other way around (specify j2ee modules, then hook in server-specifics).

Also, the weblogic stuff seems rather intimately tied in to IDEA. Will this be a plugin? Will the API be open?

Will it be possible to import ear files before it is released?

Seems like you can only generate new modules and not import existing ones in this new shape of J2EE support.

I dearly hope that the J2EE server support will be a open API so that other vendors can supply plugins.

I have to agree. It's looks like something is missing.... Build 813 still feels better.

Sure current j2ee support is a prototype, and we release it in the EAP in hope all these inconsistencies will be found and fixed.

Yes, eventually Weblogic stuff will be retired to plugin and corresponding OpenAPI will be published.

What do you mean by "import existing ear files" ?
Why do you need that ?

I think that what Mr. Rydin must have meant is that it is sometimes useful or necessary to use existing, binary modules as part of a larger application. Will it be possible to get an EJB jar and import it directly, making it's deployment descriptors available for appropriate editing and including it in the EJB make process (i.e. the part of the buid process that occurrs after the source is compiled, but before the EJB is ready for deployment)?

Sorry for being unclear.
It is not uncomon to have an existing J2EE application that I need to add modules to, or to change existing modules. Pretty often, you find modules with full sourcecode included.

I would therefore like to be able to load/import an .ear file into idea and see an Idea J2EE module generated based on the ear file, as well as generate .ear files from Idea.

In the earlier EAP builds you could import existing descriptors into Idea, I hope that this will be possible again?
