[ANN] Orion Plugin

I've made a small Orion Application Server plugin. No JSP debugging I'm afraid, but it does allow you to easily run/debug your webapps in Orion inside of IDEA, without requiring any editing of orion XML files.

It can be downloaded from http://www.formicary.net/orionplugin.jar

Simply drop that file into your plugins directly. Feedback would be most appreciated!

Hi Hani,

Thanks for making an Orion plugin.

Perhaps you could add it to Twiki?
http://www.intellij.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/IntelliJPluginsHome

Now my question: how do I use your plugin? I've dropped it into /plugins
and cycled IDEA. I don't see any new options anywhere so I'm sure I'm
missing something.

I'm running build 701 (aka version 3.0.4).

I suppose its no big deal if I can't get it to work since I'm already
running and debugging Orion inside of IDEA. The only thing I'm really
missing is JSP debugging, though I don't need that too much since our JSPs
are pretty lightweight.

Thanks for your help,
Martin

yeah I'll add it to the wiki once I figure out how all that works. There's not much to using it, go to project properties, run/debug, and add a webapp. You'll see that orion 2.0.x is one of the options (alongside tomcat and whatever other web integration plugins you have). From there you can pick your server/app and run

Thanks for the pointers Hani.

That did the trick. Once I modified my Orion start script to allow remote
debugging (which might be worth documenting with your plugin) everything
worked great.

FYI, everything works just fine under Orion 1.5.2 as well.

The link for the plugin appears to be dead, though the website at www.formicary.net is up.

Oops, my apologies. The link should be working now.

Thank you, Hani, for your timely help with the link!

(Another heads-up: the "Plugins Installation" section on the Orion Integration Plugin page could be confusing to someone who looks there before looking at the "Using" section.)

Do you know how well, if at all, the OrionIntegration plugin works with OC4J?

0

No idea how well it works with OC4J. I'd image it should work provided oc4j accepts the -config command line and has the same format for web-site.xml and application.xml

this does NOT work with the latest version of OC4J

Oracle9iAS (9.0.2.1.0) Containers for J2EE (build 020827.1652)

0

Any idea if there is a plugin out there that does work with the OC4J?
