JBoss plugin assumes position of jboss-web.xml

Most of my projects have been set up as follows:
/my project dir
/src
/web
/WEB-INF

  • jboss-web.xml*


The plugin assumes that the jboss-web.xml file is located in /WEB-INF
instead of where I tell it (/web/WEB-INF)
/my project dir
/src
/web
/WEB-INF

  • jboss-web.xml*

/WEB-INF

  • jboss-web.xml


*If I change it, it eventually loses the setting and reverts to the
default.*

Also, every time you add a server, it assumes that it is located in the
IJ bin directory. Would it make more sense to remember your last
selected directory? It might be much closer.

Adding a new server is not an every-days task (unless you are developing
the plugin...), therefore I never felt this is worth implementing. But
if it makes your life easier, I'll take a look at it.

I'm not quite sure if I understand exactly what's happening. You can
change the location of the jboss-web.xml file at any time in the module
settings. Could you please give me a more detailed description of what
exactly you are doing?

When I set the server to be JBoss, I go to the dialog and change the
location of the jboss-web.xml on the "Web Module Settings" tab. The
change appears to work. Sometime later, I discover that the value has
reverted back to it's original location and a new jboss-web.xml file has
been created.

This is probably true. Make it a low priority.

OK, I got it. Give me some time to investigate on that.

Norris,

I didn't manage to reproduce this problem. Could you give me a step-by-step instruction how to reproduce it? A sample project would also help.
