Servlet 3.0 (JSR 315) support in Maia

Maia supports Servlet 3.0 specification (JSR 315). You can now create a Web application without a web.xml descriptor:

Now, configure your servlets and filters with @WebServlet and @WebFilter annotations:

Everything is recognized by IntelliJ IDEA, as well as Web fragment descriptors and static resources packaged in libraries.

You can also use built-in Glassfish v3.0 integration to deploy your applications. Good luck!

    Hi When I create a web application with no web.xml file it’s not possible to create a new servlet from insert servlet I get an error that there is no web.xml file, if I then create one I can create servlet but it wants to add details to web.xml file which is not needed.

    Where exactly is the T5 support? I just installed and tried it out and nothing seems any different to me than version 8. Editor still reports errors for all the T5 references.
