Disable NetBeans httpmonitor in GlassFish

I found my GlassFish v2 server.log file is littered with these warning messages:

WARNING *********** NetBeans HTTP Monitor ************
The request cannot be recorded most likely because the
NetBeans HTTP Server is not running....
Here is what I just did to disable and completely remove NetBeans httpmonitor from my GlassFish v2:

1. Open $GLASSFISH_HOME/domains/domain1/config/default-web.xml, delete or comment out the declaration and mapping for servlet filter HTTPMonitorFilter. That is, the following lines:
2. Optionally, delete $GLASSFISH_HOME/domains/domain1/lib/org-netbeans-modules-web-httpmonitor.jar.
Since I don't need this httpmonitor, there is no reason to keep this jar.

3. Redeploy any web applications that was previously deployed when NetBeans HTTPMonitorFilter was in default-web.xml. This step is needed for apps already deployed, because the generated web.xml already contains HTTPMonitorFilter (inherited from the old default-web.xml), and it will not be regenerated even at server restart.

That should get rid of this warning messages. For more technical details, see NetBeans issue 139653 and GlassFish issue 3844.
