Eclipse GlassFish Integration on Windows for Java EE 7. Hello, dear friends. In this video, we will make Eclipse and GlassFish server integration. First, I start the Eclipse IDE. Click 'OK' for default workspace. First, I will install GlassFish extension for Eclipse. Click 'Help'. Eclipse Marketplace, a window appears. It will take a while to be ready. I am writing here 'glassfish' and press 'Go' button. Glassfish tools came on the first order. Here, I click the 'Install' button. 

It is retrieving packages and information related to glassfish. A license text came in the half side of the window. I select accept and click 'Finish'. It starts to install. When installation is over, it asks you to restart the Eclipse IDE. I say 'yes' and restart it. There is one more step to complete the integration. Here, on the very left side of the Eclipse window, there is a button, let you show project view, click it. A smaller view appears. Drag it from bottom right corner and adjust. Okay. Here you can see servers tab. When I click 'Servers tab', it switch again Web View. It is a bug.

Okay. Click again 'Project View'. Now, I am going to add GlassFish server and complete integration. By the way, if you can't see servers tab here, that's no problem. You can show it by Window, Show View and Servers menu. Anyway, click here to add a new GlassFish server. A new window appears. Here, click 'GlassFish' folder and select GlassFish. Click 'Next'. Here, I will specify the location of GlassFish server and JDK location for Java EE 7. Click directory button at the right. Expand C drive. Expand Glassfish form and select glassfish. Click 'OK'. Click directory button to select JDK location. Expand C, expand glassfish form, select JDK 7, and click 'OK'. Click 'Next', 'Next' again, and 'Finish'. Glassfish Server added and started. You can stop it by clicking that square shaped red icon. Yes, it stopped. And you can start it via right-click. Start from options as well. Okay, it started successfully. We made the Eclipse GlassFish Integration successfully.
