Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMODEVTOOLS-540) Prevent geronimo contamination from deployments from multiple workspaces
Date Thu, 04 Dec 2008 05:12:44 GMT


Tim McConnell commented on GERONIMODEVTOOLS-540:

Hi Francisco, it's interesting that you've requested this functionality. You might have noticed
the greyed-out button in the Test Environment section of the server adapter properties page
labeled: "Run modules directly from workspace" (you can see it in the first screenshot that
you've attached). That button is meant to provide the capability to run deployed modules directly
from the Eclipse workspace rather than the Geronimo repository, which is pretty much what
you are asking for since you could then switch workspaces at will and not "contaminate" the
common Geronimo server installation from any of the workspaces you use. 

Unfortunately though that button is greyed-out because it hasn't been fully implemented. I'm
not exactly sure why not but I would guess because it hasn't been a high-priority requirement
from many users. Also, it may be there that there just haven't been too many GEP users/developers
who use multiple Eclipse workspaces with a common Geronimo installation. In any case, I'll
do the initial analysis to see what is required to fully implement this function since obviously
it's important to you.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.....

> When doing development of several independent applications over the Geronimo, that Geronimo
installation gets contaminated by those applications
> If I create workspaces1, and inside it I create dynamic webproject 1, and run it on Geronimo,
then I switch to workspace2, and create dynamic webproject 2, and run it on Geronimo, since
it is the same Geronimoinstance, both dynamic webproject 1 and dynamic webproject 2 will start
(and there is no way, from inside eclipse to undeploy dynamic webproject 1 unless I go back
to workspaces1 and undeploy it.
> But, if one is working with Tomcat, there is no problem, applications do not "contaminate"
the shared Tomcat, why is that? well the Tomcat WTP Adapter has a configuration option enabled
by default under "Server Location", that reads: "Use workspace metadata (does not modify Tomcat
installation)". I would like to have an option like that for Geronimo.
