and than just click

A new servlet gets created in the source packages by name It has code which is generated by NetBeans. Just add or remove code given below.

package com.hubberspot.servlets;

import com.hubberspot.ejb.Tweet;
import java.util.logging.Level;
import java.util.logging.Logger;
import javax.annotation.Resource;
import javax.jms.*;
import javax.servlet.ServletException;
import javax.servlet.annotation.WebServlet;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse;

@WebServlet(name = "TweetsSubmit", urlPatterns = {"/TweetsSubmit"})
public class TweetsSubmit extends HttpServlet {

    @Resource(mappedName = "jms/tweetsFactory")
    private ConnectionFactory connectionFactory;
    @Resource(mappedName = "jms/tweets")
    private Queue queue;

    protected void processRequest(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)
            throws ServletException, IOException {
        PrintWriter out = response.getWriter();
        String username = request.getParameter("txtUsername");
        String tweet = request.getParameter("txtTweet");

        if (username != null && tweet != null) {
            try {

                Connection connection = connectionFactory.createConnection();
                Session session = connection.createSession(false, Session.AUTO_ACKNOWLEDGE);
                MessageProducer messageProducer = session.createProducer(queue);

                ObjectMessage objectMessage = session.createObjectMessage();
                Tweet newTweet = new Tweet();

            } catch (JMSException ex) {
                Logger.getLogger(TweetsSubmit.class.getName()).log(Level.SEVERE, null, ex);


    protected void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)
            throws ServletException, IOException {
        processRequest(request, response);

    protected void doPost(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)
            throws ServletException, IOException {
        processRequest(request, response);

    public String getServletInfo() {
        return "Short description";

In the next section of this blog (part 9) you will learn how to create a yet another Servlet in NetBeans by name DisplayTweets, for this application in the Web module.
