Subject Re: Setting up Wave for client development (my experience setting up on WindowsXP)
Date Tue, 17 Dec 2013 20:34:25 GMT
Hi Thomas,

I'm completely unfamilar with your dev tools, however when you suggested 
having to run something first before http://localhost:9898 exists, that 
rung a bell for me as a windows developer.  When attempting to listen on 
a URL in a windows environment with a WCF self-hosted service - that is, 
outside of the IIS web server, I've had to explicitly grant access 
rights for the URL to my application's user account by running something 
netsh http add urlacl url=http://localhost:9898 user="MyServiceUser"

I think "netsh http" only works on Vista or higher though, in an XP 
environment you'd need the Windows Support Tools installed to accomplish 
the same via the command line, although I don't know which tool you use 
in here since at that point I just switched my installer from invoking 
another tool, to using the HTTP API directly (see 
HttpSetServiceConfiguration in the httpapi.dll), which gives the 
required functionality between both operating systems.  Not sure if 
that'll help?

           <arg value=""/>

Progress, but still no luck.
My XML now seems identical to you, with the exception of  <jvmarg 
value="-Xmx512M"/> is <jvmarg value="-Xmx1024M"/>. I assume that's just 
mine having more memory assigned though.

On running "ant hosted-gwt" I now get a startupurl , but no connection 
to it (enclosed screenshot, hope it works);

Could it be something with port numbers? I notice theres a parameter 
there "address=8001", dunno if that has any connection with my lack of 
Only other thing I can think of is I have to run something else first 
before "http://localhost:9898" exists?
