Something is wrong in the way server restarts are implemented. If you measure the time it takes to launch and shutdown Glassfish independently, then compare it to the time it takes to restart Glassfish (using the button in the Output Window) you will notice there is a delay between the time Glassfish has finished shutting down and the time before Netbeans will relaunch it.
I am trying to minimize the restart time as much as possible because of http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6333056/running-webapps-in-separate-processes
See issue 199436 for the equivalent Glassfish RFE.
My mistake, please disregard the reference to issue 199436.
since the restart 'works' this is really an enhancement request.
