Current showstopper list

My plugin sorta works, but there are a number of showstopper issues that prevent me from releasing. These are:

http://www.intellij.net/tracker/idea/viewSCR?publicId=34574

This one makes it very hard to keep using the plugin. It's one thing if the run config is lost, it's easy to reproduce, but the loss means that all the modules become bound to 'generic appserver', and the user would have to go through those manually and assign them anew to my appserver.

It's also symptomatic of a more serious problem; that modules have to be strongly bound to one appserver. I'd imagine a very popular scenario for people testing cross server compatibility is to want to run the same module in a couple of different server plugins. Currently they'd have to go to the module and switch the server the module is bound to, instead of just creating a new run configuration.

http://www.intellij.net/tracker/idea/viewSCR?publicId=34260

This just looks very odd. I should not have to stop a server twice in a row.


Finally, the 'debug does nothing' message I posted earlier, but I'm hoping that one is more due to be doing something foolish.

These problems all exist in 2114.

"Currently they'd have to go to the module and switch the server the module is bound to, instead of just creating a new run configuration."

Hani, I was just about to point that out. This is just really bad. You can't drop into a separate run config and run the app with a different server.

Please fix this!

The only question is how to make such a project (project with several
serverrs activated)? Should all build participants take part in a build
procedure or you have to select one of them in the build settings?

I'd say they should all take part. I don't think this will be issue since only particularly crappy appservers require a pre-compile phase, and even these are slowly dying out...or is it more common than I know?
