Hi Shrey,

I'll be more than glad to document it for you.

I was trying to edit this page- http://cwiki.apache.org/GMOxDEV/building-apache-geronimo.html but it says I do not have permission to edit it. Also, I experimented a little with inPlace deployment but couldn't get it to work for plancreator and I think the method described above is useful for admin console webapps. Can someone else document this method ?

While working on PlanCreator, I initially restarted it after each modification to the code which is too cumbersome for testing small changes especially in the JSPs. Thanks to Manu, I realized that there's an easier workaround to this:-

  1. Modify <geronimo-directory>\var\catalina\conf\web.xml:

         * Set the *development* parameter to *true* in the
           init-param to org.apache.jasper.servlet.JspServlet
         * Edit (add if doesn't exist) the
           *modificationTestInterval* to *0*
  2. In the webapp that you intend to modify, find the web.xml and

     remove the servlet-name and servlet-mapping of the jsp you
     intend to modify and test.
     For example, for PlanCreator I edit the
  3. Restart the server with these settings in place.

Once this is done, you can modify the jsp in place and hit refresh to test it. It'll be recompiled each time. I think this is very handy for developing and testing deployed web applications. Can someone copy this to wiki or grant me access to it ?

Looks like Shrey has already submitted an ICLA to the ASF. Hernan, can you give Shrey access?

My machine got toasted (literally) last week and I'm still struggling with the new one.

I just added Shrey to geronimo-contributors.

for the record, any confluence admin can do this, a list with the admins is available at http://cwiki.apache.org/geronimo/geronimo-cwiki-documentation-architecture.html

Shrey, let us know if you have any questions

btw, wouldn't a scenario like the one described be addressed by inPlace deployment ? I used that in the past and worked like a charm

btw 2, Firefox 3 is also giving me headaches.
