Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMODEVTOOLS-177) Start of Remote Geronimo Server from within Eclipse fails
Date Wed, 25 Jul 2007 06:04:31 GMT


Shiva Kumar H R commented on GERONIMODEVTOOLS-177:

Thanks Tim.

Please see below comments from Sachin in a discussion on
1. You can't start a remote server that is stopped.  "Start" from a remote server perspective
means just connecting to it.  But it has to be started outside of eclipse.  If the remote
server is stopped then pressing start will just attempt to connect several times and then
2. If the server is a "remote" server.  Hitting start will attempt to connect to it... if
successful then the state will automatically change to started.  If it fails we should be
able to display a slightly different error stating that the server is remote and the connection
to it failed and must be started manually.

Agreed that is the current implementation. But when I look from a user perspective, I feel
if we allow users to "Stop" a remote server, then we should as well allow them to "Start"
the remote server. Don't  know if there is some technical limitation that doesn't allow "Start
of Remote Server". Else I propose that we alter current behavior of "Start" operation to actually
"Start the Remote Server".

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: eclipse-plugin
>         Environment: Geronimo Eclipse Plug-in v1.2.1 and v2.0
>            Reporter: Shiva Kumar H R
>            Assignee: Tim McConnell
> Scenario: Using Eclipse to deploy apps to a remote instance of Geronimo.
> Add a remote instance of Geronimo server (say v2.0) inside Eclipse as per the instructions
> Upon trying to Start that remote Geronimo server from within Eclipse, it immediately
fails with an error "Server Apache Geronimo v2.0 Server at <remote-server-name> failed
to start."
> However if the remote server is manually started (outside of Eclipse), after a while
its state changes to "Started" inside Eclipse. And we can deploy/redeploy/undeploy & stop
the remote server.
