Web Server provides plug-ins to integrate with the NetBeans Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for deploying and debugging web applications. NetBeans is a complete development environment to create Java Platform Enterprise Edition (Java EE) based web applications with the standard components.
In addition to the deployment of web applications, the plug-in also provides support for the following activities:
Manage instances, such as start or stop server instances
Enable or disable applications
Create server wide resources, such as JDBC resources and JDBC connection pools
