Subject Re: Geronimo WTP client for eclipse doesn't work as expected
Date Mon, 28 Jan 2008 16:55:26 GMT
Hi Mett, Thanks very much for trying out the Geronimo server and the Geronimo 
Eclipse plugin. The behavior you're seeing is not the normal behavior. You 
should see your application get redeployed, which it sounds like you are, and 
then see the changes in your web application and/or browser. I have a test for 
this and will double-check that it still works on 2.0.2. Meanwhile, you might 
check to ensure that you have all the required prerequisites for the 2.0.x 
plugin from here:


If you are at liberty to share your workspace that would help me, but if not, we 
can work around it. Thanks much....
