GlassFish clickstart

This clickstart sets up a build service, repository and a basic GlassFish app with continuous deployment. All built by maven.

Launch this clickstart and glory could be yours too ! Use it as a building block if you like. You can launch this on Cloudbees via a clickstart automatically, or follow the instructions below.

This is based on the GlassFish stack that you can read more about here.

Deploying manually:

Create a Glassfish4 container

bees app:create -a my-glassfish4-app -t glassfish4

Create a MySQL Database

bees db:create my-glassfish4-db

Bind the MySQL Database to the Glassfish container

bees app:bind -a my-glassfish4-app -db my-glassfish4-db -as mydb

  • jdbc/mydb : unqualified relative JNDI name is supported / OK
  • java:comp/env/jdbc/mydb: qualified private name is supported / OK
  • java:jdbc/mydb and java:/jdbc/mydb: qualified relative names are not supported by Glassfish / KO
  • java:global/env/jdbc/mydb: qualified global name is not supported by Glassfish / KO


Context ctx = new InitialContext();
DataSource ds = (DataSource) ctx.lookup("jdbc/mydb");
DataSource ds = (DataSource) ctx.lookup("java:comp/env/jdbc/mydb");
