Tomcat 4.0 integration

Hi all,

I have just started to use IDEA. I was using Forte 3.0 and was recommended
by my colleague to try out this tool. This is a very productive tool and I
am still exploring. One thing I miss from this tool is integration with
Tomcat 4.0.

Is there anything in the pipeline that will allow me to start and restart
Tomcat from within IDEA.

Forte 3.0 has a webapp module which recognise the web application folder
layout and it creates a Tomcat conf.xml on the fly. That way you can rapid
test your web application from within your IDE.

Well, I have an ant task that will reload my web-app in tomcat:

My build task copies class files to my tomcat web-app directory, and then calls the above task. (You have to allow global access to the "manager" servlet for this to work - probably OK in a dev environment - or figure out how to send a username/password. Look in webapps/manager/web.xml, and comment out the ]]> element.)

Hope this is useful,
-Alex Dommasch

JavaLobby just had an article posted on this issue. The integration
described isn't the best possible, but should make development easier.

Michael,

The Web-container integration feature which will allow you to run/debug your
web apps (including JSPs) is right under development.

In regards to debugging JSPs, how will this work?

Will we be able to set breakpoints in our JSP files? Or will we have to
debug the generated .java files from the JSPs? Since every servlet engine
translates JSPs into .java files differently, how will we be able to debug
JSPs?

Ian.

Ian,

You'll be able to set breakpoints in JSP files. The algorithm of
understanding of resulting .java files will be pluggable. The reference
implementation for Tomcat will be provided.

Mike

Are you able to reveal which build will this integration be available? Being
able to debug JSP will be a fantastic feature.

Michael,

This is currently work in progress. It might be available in a build or two.

I am so amazed at the speed you are developing. I hope that it is a
sustainable pace because we are all addicted.

Hi,

i hope its better than the integration which we can do at the moment, cause
even it looks like it works quite ok, you
get real problems when you want to restart or reload the integrated tomcat
with the /manager app or with ANT
tasks (which are also based on the /manager app).
You also have problems with JNDI lookups at the moment.

I would be very happy if you could test these issues as well before
releasing the tomcat integration.
