Using GlassFish / Payara 5 with Eclipse Oxygen


If you want to try GlassFish or Payara 5 with one of the current Eclipse versions (Oxygen, which includes JBoss Developer Studio), you run into the problem that the GlassFish Tools plugin checks the GlassFish version and refuses to work with the current release.

As a workaround edit the manifest of glassfish-api.jar located in the modules directory of your GlassFish installation and change the Bundle-Version to 4.0.0.

After this modification you can connect GlassFish 5 to Eclipse via GlassFish Tools, run the server and deploy applications as usual.
