Step 1: Create a Web Project

We start by creating a new Eclipse Dynamic Web Project:

  • Open the [New Project] dialog box, e.g. by using File > New > Project...
  • Select Web > Dynamic Web Project and click Next.
  • Choose a Project Name (e.g. Guestbook).
  • Select Apache Tomcat v6.0 as the Target runtime. Note: You may have to add Tomcat 6 as a new server by clicking the New Runtime... button. Follow the instructions and specify the path to Tomcat 6 (which has to be downloaded separately) .
  • Click the Finish button to create the dynamic web project.

Now, add ObjectDB support to the new Eclipse Project - by dragging the objectdb.jar file from the file system and dropping it on the WEB-INF/lib node in the Eclipse Project Explorer:

Now you should have an Eclipse Dynamic Web project with ObjectDB/JPA support.

The next step is creating a JPA Entity class.
