Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-1355) Geronimo Server Plug-in Needs User Documentation
Date Wed, 14 Dec 2005 00:17:46 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-1355?page=comments#action_12360379 ] 

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.

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=120715 

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...

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=120743 

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.
Thx.
