Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-1355) Geronimo Server Plug-in Needs User Documentation
Date Wed, 14 Dec 2005 00:17:46 GMT

Sachin Patel commented on GERONIMO-1355:

Yes I got the "hang as well", the following bugzilla has been opened.  Since the download
is 50+ megs, theres no progress status shown to the user and it appears that the workbench
is hung. 

Also the UI layout is part of the generic server wizard framework, not in the geronimo plugin.
 I've already opened the following bugzilla for improvements to this panel... 

The other concern is that the current design is for the geronimo server to be repackaged inside
a plugin.  This needs to change.  The update manager has support for installing data archives.
 Using a install handler pointing the data archive using a URL mapping we should be able to
avoid repackaging the server and just point to the binary distro's of geronimo.

> I was trying to install the server adapter in WTP 1.0 RC4 but didn't get very far. I
don't understand the expected behavior after download. What do I need to configure. 
> In the "New Server Runtime" dialog there are two buttons. [Browse] and [Install Server].
I believe the [Browse] button just want the location of the Geronimo runtime, i.e. where I
unzipped the download (I am trying to install manually since the Update Manager approach failed).
What does [Install Server] do? It also prompts for a directory. What is that used for? I'd
appreciate some online Help. How about adding some Dynamic Help to explain the buttons, or
maybe a new article or tutorial. The old Tim Francis article skips over the install details.
