Deploying and Testing the Composite Application

You just have a few more steps to complete this demonstration:

  1. Make sure you have saved your work.
  2. Clean and Build the CaptureTroubleTickets project.
  3. Clean and Build the TroubleTicketCASA project.
  4. Deploy the TroubleTicketCASA project.

To deploy the CASA project, right-click the TroubleTicketCASA project icon in the Projects view, and click Deploy.

If you'll check the console output window in NetBeans, you should see something like this, indicating a successful test:

Test TestCase1\Concurrent.properties Passed.
   Threads count Success: <1> Error: <0> Not completed: <0>


This article has barely scratched the service of what is available within the GlassFish ESB and OpenESB projects. There simply are too many capabilities and features that are beyond the scope of an introductory article such as this. However, hopefully you are now intrigued enough to at least consider investigating GlassFish ESB further on your own.

There are significant developments underway in the GlassFish project community, and as your SOA/EA efforts may face tighter budget challenges, there is real value to be leveraged by considering the GlassFish Java EE Server and GlassFish ESB project as potential core components within your infrastructure. The excellent integration with NetBeans IDE simply adds to the value proposition.

There are some very interesting GlassFish adoption success stories that may help give you a better understanding of the level of serious consideration that has been given to including GlassFish ESB in some recent enterprise architecture efforts.


In researching GlassFish ESB for this article, I came across a number of resources that will help you get up-to-speed quickly, and increase your depth of knowledge of the capabilities of the GlassFish application server:
