1.Setting up netbeans. The installation for netbeans is fairly an easy task. Am not going to show you how to do that but briefly I will show you how to link netbeans with mysql and glassfish. In case your netbeans is set already, you can skip to part 3 of this post.
a). Adding mysql support. Locate the service tab as indicated in the image below.
b). Adding glassfish server. If you downloaded the netbeans for JavaEE developers, glassfish will automatically be added when you install netbeans. You can skip this to here.
In case your netbeans doesn't have glassfish server added, under the services tab, right click on server, select add server. the server option select glassfish.On the installation location, search the location you have stored your glassfish server.the other steps are very straightforward.
In the next post. We will prepare the database and create a crud application.
