I also agree we should prefer and bundle Tomcat - it's much more popular than TomEE.
Again, it would be great if someone could try out TomEE with the current 7.3 builds to see whether it works and how well, and file enhancement requests for any specific missing features and functionality.

I'm not sure TomEE to be a popular server yet (I've just discovered it thanks to this mailing list ^_^).
Many developers work with Tomcat as a servlet container, and other well-known servers for complete Java EE support : WebSphere, GlassFish, etc. If we look for a Java EE compliant version of Tomcat, the Apache foundation already provides this kind of server : Geronimo.
Provide a support for TomEE would be a great feature, but bundling it with NetBeans would be a bit confusing : we already have GlassFish ;)

- There was a discussion about application servers. It's okay that you don't see Tomcat as an option when creating an Enterprise Application. Only GlassFish supports EARs however several participants required to extend the offering with TomEE (#212198) and JBoss (#200132). Should TomEE replace Tomcat in Servers or just complement it?
I believe TomEE should compliment Tomcat. TomEE might be overkill for non EE applications although it works on either. I have no issues downloading and setting up TomEE, what’s lacking is the Enterprise Application support like the one for Glashfish. As a summary, I’ll suggest bundling TomEE with Glashfish, but maintaining the current Tomcat support (i.e. allowing to register it and work integrated with the IDE). ************
