Magnus,
There is an open bug for this (Hani opened it, as you probably know) -- but it was marked as a feature request so I'm really worried 4.0 will ship without this. I just can't believe that JB would build the awesome J2EE module support and not expose it so that it can actually be used to integrate with app servers! :(

When will the API be released so that vendors can add support for their Servers?

Does this mean IDEA 4.0 will only have support for weblogic, and not any more for tomcat as in 3.0 ?

I must say that's very disappointing news. Why spend all this time on the J2EE Modules only to not expose the most important part needed to do good app server integration (currently the orion and resin plugins make broad assumptions about the structure of the webapp -- ones that could be corrected with the information in the J2EE Modules).

It's really depressing to see this continuing trend at JetBrains of almost delivering excellence and then just falling short. IDEA 4.0 is almost my killer IDE, but then there are just a few small items that cripple it back to 3.0-level -- or worse.

:(

Anyway, I don't mean to diss you guys. I'm just really excited at the potential and it's frustrating to be teased for so long to only have to wait for yet another release. Keep up the good work.

Alexey I just noticed the JSR45 App Server Plugin. Have you guys tested
that with anything, if so which?

One option to make Pat happy would be to just expose the API to allow plugins to find the webroots of a module, instead of the full J2EE API.

Well, ideally (at a minimum) I'd like for the webmodule libraries to also be exposes. That is the minimum info needed for resin or orion to be able to deploy a webapp that has classes that don't actually exist in WEB-INF/lib or WEB-INF/classes during dev.

Kind of dramatic aren't you? You still have the ability to perform remote
debugging. If you do not have control logic in your JSPs, then there is not
too much that really needs to be debugged.

Actually it seems the JSR45 plugin that was added in the last build (or
two?) will allow you to run the executable for most app servers and
debug in it. I will be trying it with resin later on today. Will post
how it works, if it works.
