Some more testing and I have hit one problem. "Start" of remote server from inside of Eclipse fails.

In my earlier testing, I had started the remote server manually and upon adding it in Eclipse, (after a while) its state changed to "Started". And I was able to deploy/redeploy/undeploy & stop the server. However once the server is stopped (either from within Eclipse or outside), I am not able to Start the Remote Server from inside of Eclipse.

I tried this with Geronimo Eclipse Plug-in v2.0 (on Eclipse v3.3 + WTP v2.0) with Geronimo 2.0, and here too I am not able to "Start" the Remote Server from inside of Eclipse. Opened a bug report ( https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMODEVTOOLS-177) for the same. Thanks for raising this discussion.

Between, are you able to manually start the remote server and see its status getting changed to "Started" inside Eclipse?

Alright I tried what you asked for - Remote deployment to Geronimo 1.1 (geronimo-tomcat-j2ee-1.1.zip is what I tried) from within "Eclipse v3.2.1 + WTP v1.5.2 + Geronimo Eclipse Plug-in v1.2.1" and it works correctly. (My local and remote machines run on Windows XP on Intel-32 processor).

I followed similar steps as in http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/java/library/os-ag-remotedeploy/index.html . First added a local server and then added a remote server (as in Figure 4 & Figure 5 in that article). Then tried deploying a simple web app to the remote server and it was successful. Modified web app and then chose 'Publish' on remote server and re-deploy was successful, and I could see the changes reflected in browser.

What errors do you face?

Hii,

I think there might be a problem with the plugin specifically on amd64. I just installed wtp 1.5.4 and the geronimo plugin 1.2.1 on a i386 linux and the local deployment and start/stop server worked!
Although, when it comes to remote servers, nothing works yet.

Here (http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/java/library/os-ag-remotedeploy/index.html ) it is said that remote deployment directly from eclipse ( i.e, just click on publish button) is as simple as local deployment on geronimo 1.0.
But from here ( https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=150690 ) i might say it is impossible and nothing is being done at the moment as the bug has a WONTFIX resolution.

So, the big question is: does remote deployment directly from eclipse work with geronimo 1.1 and g-eclipse 1.2.1?

thanks,

Hi, 

I've managed to install the daily 1.2.1 driver deploying it directly into eclipse tree, but it still doesn't work. The server still remains in "Starting..." state until it fails. Looking through some lists and release notes, I figured out it's been a frequent issue in geronimo. It's said to have been fixed in 1.2.0 and 1.2.1 (again?) but unfortunately doesn't work here.
The server state for remote servers isn't updated as well. I'd appreciate if someone could clarify me if it really works, as some people told me they thought this feature simply didn't exist.

thanks,

Rodrigo

Hi,

I am relatively new to Apache Geronimo. I am implementing a software engineering lab project at the university and chose Geronimo as an application server. I have downloaded and installed the Geronimo Plugin for Eclipse 1.2.0 through update manager. I am running Geronimo 1.1.1 on a i386-debian-4.0r0 and Eclipse SDK 3.2.2 with WST 1.5.4 (from update manager) on an amd64 with Ubuntu 7.04 (eclipse installed from repositories) and Sun Java 5 JVM (also from repositories).

There are two issues I've been facing, which are:

1. The local server won't start from inside the IDE. It actually starts but remains in "Starting..." state after a successful startup. After several minutes, Eclipse returns a fail message. I have seen some issues alike reported on this list, but the possible solution (install 1.2.1 plugin) didn't work. I downloaded the daily 1.2.1 driver from devtools site but unzipping it to the plugins/features directories was effectless (there was no "Geronimo" runtime available). The worst thing is that this bug seemed to have been resolved on 1.2.0 as I could read from its release notes. Another fact is that starting a local server worked at a faculty machine running Windows 2k.

2. The server state won't reflect the real server state when one geronimo instance is started from outside the IDE (as I could read on IBM developerWorks papers, it should). I have tried with remote and local instances of geronimo. Therefore I couldn't deploy applications through eclipse, as the servers were in "Stopped" state and Eclipse tried to start them, thereafter failing as they were already started from outside. This wouldn't work in windows 2k as well.

I would appreciate if someone could help me, as this environment setup issues are delaying our project.

My best regards,
