In the EJB Tutorial "cart" project, we find the following passage:
3. Type the following command:
4. Type the following command:
This task is equivalent to running the following command:
appclient -client cartClient.jar
There are two errors in the above text, afaik:
My suggestion would be the following. Modify the text to read:
This will help the user understand what's going on in the background, which was the main point missing for me in this tutorial in the first place. After following through on the cart exercise, my main question was: "How does the client-app know where to find the remote EJB on the glassfish server Unable to render embedded object: File (" Providing the 'ant client-jar' task and maybe explaining what's happening in the background (asadmin ...) would be a great help for anyone interested in how the remote EJB binding works in this example) not found. Hence my improvement suggestion to add this to the next revision of the tutorial.

The text could be clearer about exactly which steps ant run performs.
This issue affect the Java EE 6 Tutorial. At this point, we don't have any planned updates for the EE 6 Tutorial, and we have moved to Maven for Java EE 7.
If we have another EE 6 release, this issue should be fixed in the documentation source.

With no planned releases of the Java EE 6 Tutorial planned, and the Java EE 7 Tutorial released (which uses Maven), I'm closing this out.
