We will download and install Java EE 7 SDK which comes with GlassFish Open Source Edition 4 (currently 4.1.1)and then configure eclipse to deploy Java EE applications directly to GlassFish Server. You can download the latest Java EE 7 SDK from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javaee/downloads/index.html. You can also directly download the latest commercially supported GlassFish Server distribution (currently 22.214.171.124) from the same link.
Each IDE has a preferred way of organizing the files that make up an application. These organization schemes are not always hard and fast but those presented here are the common ways of arranging the files.
To create eclipse plugins, you need an eclipse distribution package with Eclipse Plug-in Development Environment like Eclipse Standard or Eclipse IDE for Java EE. I am using Eclipse Standard 4.3.2. Always try to use the latest version of the distribution available. You can start exploring from eclipse site at http://www.eclipse.org/downloads to check the package contents of the distribution package.
