IntelliJ IDEA 13.1.0 Web Help

Some features described here are available in Ultimate edition only.

You can enable EJB support when creating a new project or module. You can also add the EJB support for an existing module.

Enabling EJB support when creating a project or module
  1. Do one of the following:
    • If you are going to create a new project: click Create New Project on the Welcome screen or select File | New Project.

      As a result, the New Project wizard opens.

    • If you are going to add a module to an existing project: open the project you want to add a module to, and select File | New Module.

      As a result, the New Module wizard opens.

  2. On the first page of the wizard, in the left-hand pane, select Java. In the right-hand part of the page, specify the JDK that you are going to use.
  3. Select the EJB: Enterprise Java Beans check box.

    Select the EJB version to be supported from the Versions list.

    If you want an EJB deployment descriptor file ejb-jar.xml to be created, select the Create ejb-jar.xml check box.

    Select the required library option and, if necessary, specify the associated settings. You can choose to:

    • Download and use an EJB library.

      To do that, under Libraries, select Download.

      Now, to view or modify the associated options, click Configure, and in the Downloading Options dialog that opens:

      • Specify the library name.
      • Select the library level (global, project, or module).
      • Under Files to download, select which of the files you want to download.
      • Under Copy downloaded files to, specify the path to the destination folder. If you want to change the default path, click browseButton and specify the folder location in the dialog that opens.
    • Use an EJB library IntelliJ IDEA is already aware of.

      To do that, click Use library and select the required library from the list.

      If necessary, configure the library settings (for example, change its name). This is done in the Edit Library dialog which you can open by clicking Configure.

    • Create a new library using the appropriate JAR files available on your computer.

      To do that, click Use library and then click Create. Select the required JAR files in the dialog that opens. (For multiple selection, keep the Ctrl key pressed.)

      If necessary, configure the new library (for example, change its name or level). To do that, click Configure and specify the required settings in the Create Library dialog.

    • Postpone setting up the library until a later time. In this case, select Set up library later.

    Click Next.

  4. Specify the name and location settings. For more information, see Project Name and Location or Module Name and Location.

    Click Finish.

Enabling EJB support for an existing module
  1. Open the Project tool window (e.g. View | Tool Windows | Project).
  2. Right-click the module and select Add Framework Support.
  3. In the left-hand pane of the Add Frameworks Support dialog, select the EJB: Enterprise Java Beans check box.

    Select the EJB version to be supported from the Versions list.

    If you want an EJB deployment descriptor file ejb-jar.xml to be created, select the Create ejb-jar.xml check box.

    Select the required library option and, if necessary, specify the associated settings. You can choose to:

    • Download and use an EJB library.

      To do that, under Libraries, select Download.

      Now, to view or modify the associated options, click Configure, and in the Downloading Options dialog that opens:

      • Specify the library name.
      • Select the library level (global, project, or module).
      • Under Files to download, select which of the files you want to download.
