Chapter 10

Developing Java Clients

This chapter describes how to develop, assemble, and deploy Java clients.

The following topics are addressed here:

Note - The Web Profile of the OracleGlassFish Server supports the EJB 3.1 Lite specification, which allows enterprise beans within web applications, among other features. The full GlassFish Server supports the entire EJB 3.1 specification. For details, see JSR 318.

Accordingly, the Application Client Container is supported only in the full GlassFish Server, not in the Web Profile.

JMS resources are supported only in the full GlassFish Server, not in the Web Profile. See Chapter 17, Using the Java Message Service.
