Local output

When running an appserver in local mode, the localhost/port boxes are greyed out. Yet when the server comes up, it will say 'connected to localhost:7001'. Clearly, these are weblogicisms that don't particular make sense for other servers. Why not move this console message to the plugin itself, so other server plugins can supress it if needed?

Also, at what point should I start filing issues complaining about how annoying the API is? I realise it's in flux right now so I don't want to complain too much until it's more settled.

Done :) (there are already separate panels for local/remote mode)

Also, at what point should I start filing issues complaining about how

annoying the API is? I realise it's in flux right now so I don't want to
complain too much until it's more settled.

Of course I'm looking forward for your remarks because they can save from
useless alterations

Mind posting what you find here too, Hani? I'm quite interested in your
experience writing the plugin, and browsing the bugs forum is kinda
bothersome with all those exception reports.

Most of the issues have been about having trouble accessing certain bits of data.

For example, it wasn't possible to easily support pure java servers that don't use startup/shutdown scripts, you had to subclass and override a boatload of methods to do so.

Also, deployment descriptors cannot be marked optional, even if you delete them, they will come back at some point later and you'll get build errors (since they come back pointing to nowhere)

With regards to descriptors, it isn't possible to provide templates for these within the plugin. The weblogic plugin cheats by having its resources in IDEA's resource.jar. Not a practical option for anything not developed in-house!

I'm also having issues supporting instance-specific deployment properties to put in the 'deployment settings' right hand panel on the run dialog. In the case of Orion, for example, I'd like to allow users to pick the website to add a particular webapp to. To do that, I need to be able to get at the particular instance to see what websites are available on the server.

Similarly for that panel, the current solution to support type-specific settings is to hack it in by using a cardlayout or such. For example, I only want the website combobox to show up for webapps, and not for ejb modules or j2ee apps.
