Using the PHP or C++ or JavaSE distribution of NetBeans (build 20090409):
Go to Services tab. Services tab contains the Servers node, which is irrelevant to these distributions and clutters the UI.
I see, it's time to update PHP tutorials :)
Personally I don't find this to be a regression. We're allowed to change the way the IDE behaves between releases. This
change just means that, in the All distro (where it is reasonable to expect people will use one of the many project
types that requires a server) the Servers node is visible at all times. Doesn't block any work or cause previously
functioning functionality to stop working.

No, this is not about the All distro. This is about the other small, targeted distributions.
I agree that in the All distro it should be visible all the time - *that* is desirable.
OK, I am reverting 149aa862edd5 and this issue shall be fixed as soon as ergonomics#6a65566a4500 is propagated.
Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *200904111401* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)

Log: #162273: Reverting again to original glassfish setup. glassfish-common is autoload, others are regular modules. This will make sure that no servers node is present in PHP and C++ distributions.
