There are some seriously kick ass things about 1071!
- You can debug your webapp as you could in 3.0.5. Just setup your
webroot like a real webapp, mark the webroot as the root of the
directory containing the whole thing, and off you go. The cool thing is
that if your directory is not setup like a webapp directory, you get a
warning that you don't have an exploded directory setup. cool stuff.
- Web.xml is in fact remembered(though there are 2 nasties with that one)
- Library dependencies get saved (wohoo!)
- Opening a project created in 1071 is very zippy
- Love the improving J2EE icon (get rid of the ugly factory icon please
- Love the New Module... in the File menu. MUCH better.
- Love the fact that to setup a new module you can choose right there
without having to click the J2EE button to get to what you need.
- Module wizard is very good, and it's getting better.
- Web App icon is finally GONE! wohoo, we've left 3.x behind finally.
- I am no longer afraid to edit modules LOL
- clicking make is MUCH faster and doesn't reload the container for JSP
changes... NICE. You can compile the whole module to get the web
container to reload. I don't know if this is going to work though, with
struts-config.xml, often you make a few changes and I have to compile
the whole module to get that to reload. So I have up one thing for
another... jury is still out on this. Is there no way to just keep
editing a JSP in its own module without having to hit make?
- JSPs resolution of custom tags works 4 levels deep, per my test
- Setting a break point for jsps now works on first click
- request, response, config and out all work in debug expression window
