Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMODEVTOOLS-104) When TomcatWebContainer moved default location - plugin cannot publish projects
Date Mon, 28 Aug 2006 16:13:22 GMT
Oleg Gusakov commented on GERONIMODEVTOOLS-104:

>>- What I don't understand is since there is a TomcatWebContainer defined, why isn't
Geronimo defaulting to the first one found?

It would not be a good thing for runtime to mess with applications it runs. If an application
defines a WebContainer - it plans to use it for it's own web modules. So deploying a module
into a first container foung does not fly. 

The only logical alternative - ability to select container. Could that be done with a dendency
or reference definition in geronimo-web.xml? Then plugin can use that plan if one exists.

>>Alternatively, the Eclipse WTP Server Framework allows extensiblility to the publishing
processes. So you could actually extend the Geronimo publish processes by providing a publish
task, that sets the appropriate WebContainer.

I guess - everything is possible. But what's the value of plugin if it supports only trivial
use cases? It is as if car manufacturer assembles a frame with wheels, engine and steering
wheel and sells to you, saying that the rest you can add yourself. Possible, but hardly practical

I think we should attract users to this project. And the only way to do that is by providing
convenient and flexible tools.
