Hi, I'm rather new to WTP. I'm trying to create a simple Tomcat project that integrates with a third party project (Railo - a dynamic language). I've figured out how to create a WTP project, edit code, and run it on my local Tomcat instance. |
I also generally understand the purpose of the Servers project that WTP creates and have used that to change some default Tomcat settings for when the app is deployed under the .metadata directory.
So, my problem is that this third party tool, when loaded tries to create a set of configuration files under WEB-INF. These configuration files should legitimately become a part of my project's source code repository. So, I'm trying to figure out the best mechanism to manage them.
For example, is it possible to configure WTP to simply run my project directly from the WebContent directory that is in my WTP project? (I can hear the Java developers scratching their heads, but it would be fine for Railo since it's JIT compiled!)
This would result in the configuration files, etc, being output to this directory and I could easily commit them into our source repo and make a war out of the application and its configuration to deploy to our servers.
Any thoughts on this?
