compared with Sun JES, I found no "deploytool" in glassfish.
anyone know the reason?
This blog entry has information about a packaged archive project project in NetBeans that can provide many of deploytool's features: http://blogs.sun.com/roller/page/vkraemer?entry=binary_archive_configura...
NetBeans is the recommended tool for deploying on GlassFish.
Maybe so, but I believe the intent of the poster's question (or I am projecting upon them) is what about the deployment descriptor editor part of deploytool?
The long story is that with the introduction of annotations in Java EE 5, the deploytool would have had to evolve a lot to support both annotations and xml editing with all the appropriate overriding rules.
Instead, it was decided to invest the resources in providing the feature set in netbeans :
- ability to edit standard deployment descriptors (been there for a while)
- ability to edit runtime deployment descriptors (was there with the Sun's plugin)
- ability to edit source-less archives descriptors.
Of course with a nice java tool and annotation aware IDE, the result should be a more integrated experience. As for the Eclipse users, they should check the glassfishplugins page !
