I am not able to generate index.jsp from step 5 of tutorial Creating a Simple Web Application Using a MySQL Database from http://netbeans.org/kb/docs/web/mysql-webapp.html. There were no differences of the outcome using either Java EE 5 or 6. The index.xhtml file was generated instead.
I am running Netbeans 7.1.1 with bundled Glassfish 3.1.2 on Windows XP platform.
Please let me know whether there is a step that I have missed, or not covered due to version differences.
I have tried a number of popular forums with no response in the past.
Well, we have a FAQ item that applies to that. It's named "Tell the Details" and if I wasn't so dang lazy, I'd point you at it, but the gist of it is that just saying "it doesn't work" doesn't give us much to go on, and in particular, when you're asking a question in a JSF forum and it doesn't even sound like the program you're working with is a JSF program.
The best way to get an answer is to find the forum most likely to be full of experts in the subject that your question pertains to. Normally, I'd say that would be the JSP forum, but I think that NetBeans is generating some stuff that I don't know anything about, so I'll bounce you to the IDE Forum and see what happens.
An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
