Subject Re: remotely deploy application within eclipse
Date Thu, 09 Feb 2006 21:41:46 GMT
Thanks for the clarification.  Following your instruction of modifying an existing
server, I was able to monitor the started status of my remote server within a local
eclipse.   I could not get this far when I used File--New--Other--Server to define a new
geronimo server.  I got a red X at the page that allows user to config rmi, http, admin
userid and password.  Unfortunatelly there was no error message.   

I'll play more with the remote function.
