Need better error msg when trying to bring up console with javaee-ri distribution, which doesn't include GUI

      Description

      downloaded the javaee-ri (date 28May) from the release directory and tried to start it using jdk 7u21 x64 on windows 7, and, even though I had set the JAVA_HOME and updated PATH, the response on the stdout appeared to indicate glassfish had started.

      however, using a browser (IE10) all it does is show the spinning thing and shows the status as the adminconsole application is loaded.

      it does not progress beyond that.

      the default web page at port 8080 does appear and seems normal.

      just seems impossible to bring up the admin console.

        in the server.log, I do see this:

        [2013-05-29T21:46:31.982-0500] [glassfish 4.0] [SEVERE] [NCLS-CORE-00043] [javax.enterprise.system.core] [tid: _ThreadID=106 _ThreadName=Thread-10] [timeMillis: 1369881991982] [levelValue: 1000] [[
        Application previously deployed is not at its original location any more: file:/G:/archives/glassfish-4.0/glassfish4/glassfish//lib/install/applications/__admingui]]

        I checked the location mentioned, and, indeed, there is no directory __admingui at that directory (which does exist).

        FWIW, RI distribution is Java EE reference implementation and and not full GlassFish distribution. As such it does not contain Admin console functionality.

        Leaving the issue open to see whether we need to enhance something in the future release to get more graceful behavior since the message about admin console loading is rather misleading.

        As Snjezana pointed out, console is not include/supported for RI. It should give proper/better message so user can realize that, instead of hidden in the server.log. Don't think this should be classified as a blocker. Downgrading the priority.

        This is similar to GLASSFISH-17324, where the same thing occurs when user tries to bring up the console with the nucleus distribution.
        We will address both at the same time.
