I am deploying a war with webservices on Glassfish. One of these webservices needs a number documents to be indexed using apache lucene. I have a java class that indexes the documents using lucene.
How do I make sure that on deployment of the war the constructor of the java class that indexes the documents is called and that the object is then then made available as a resource to the webservice?
I suspect that this should be done by using annotations and resource injection, but I can't find a guide that is clear enough for me as a java novice. I am using netbeans as an IDE. Any pointers / help are appreciated.
