Abstract

Many developers utilizing the GlassFish153 Enterprise server use both the Eclipse153 and NetBeans174 Interactive Development Environments. Prior to this project there was no way to import a GlassFish project that was created in NetBeans into Eclipse. Automating this conversion required an understanding of the NetBeans and Eclipse file structures. It also required an understanding of various XML parsing techniques. The encapsulation of converter within an Eclipse plug-in required an understanding of the Eclipse plug-in architecture and how it interacts with files within the plug-in bundle. The project resulted in the creation of both a stand-alone conversion tool and the integration of that tool in an Eclipse plug-in.
