Subject Editing, compiling, & running Cocoon under debugger?
Date Fri, 29 Mar 2002 01:42:03 GMT
I am a large fan of IDEA ( and I am well on 
the way to having a Cocoon project running under IDEA.

However, the ideal scenario would be that I can get it so integrated as to 
be able to:

1) Edit a Cocoon file.
2) Hit build in IDEA (which integrates with Ant).
3) Have IDEA / Ant build the classes into the Tomcat directory.
4) Restart Tomcat.
5) Test my change, debugging with IDEA via JPDA (which IDEA also supports).

The crux here is step 3.  My question, for those who do Cocoon development 
with an IDE, is simple:

When you rebuild classes, where do you set your Ant ${build.dir}?  Do you 
have your build system output the classes directly to 
%CATALINA_HOME%/webapps/cocoon/WEB-INF/classes?  Or do you rebuild the 
entire war and have Tomcat re-extract it each time you make a 
change?  (surely not!)
