I am trying to learn J6EE and am just going through the tutorials that come bundled with the download. However, I'm stuck just after the first hurdle and don't want to move on and try another example until I understand what I'm doing wrong/not doing. This particular example is called dukes-age from the firstcup-2.1 tutorials. When I run the project, I get the following error in the NetBeans run log:
I don't know how to either get rid of the application that is already using it (I moved my directory down one level after initially running it the first time, because I thought I may have put it in the wrong place) or tell NetBeans that I have only one application of that name, it just changed location on the hdd. If it's of any consequence, the J6EE referenced above is a link to /usr/glassfish/glassfish/docs.
I moved the directory because I got an error 404 the first time I ran the project. Looking through the tutorial, it says to place 'myexample' folder in the same level as the 'tut-install/example' directory, so I had to move it down a level from 'docs'. This is apparently where I will create the application. But the tutorial also says before that to create a folder anywhere for the example I will build, i.e. 2 directories. Nowhere else does it reference this second directory, or tell me how or where I set it in the project. All in all, I'm very confused.
I'd appreciate some help, thanks.

I'll answer it in case anybody else finds this issue. Basically, some setting in NetBeans 7.2 has changed, and you can't configure RESTful resources by right-clicking it and selecting Configuration because it's greyed out after the wizard has run (how useful). So instead, you have to change the line `@javax.ws.rs.ApplicationPath("webresources")` to read resources in ApplicationConfig.java if you want to follow the tutorial as written. Alternatively, you can change the relative URL to webresources/dukesAge.
