I'm relatively new to Eclipse, and very new to the EE which I switched to
in order to work with java servlets (which I am familiar with on other
IDEs etc.). I hope this is the place to raise a possible bug - if not, I'd
be obliged to know where I should raise it.
Configuration. I'm using v. 3.4 of eclipsee-jee for Mac OS X, running
under OS X 10.4 on a PPC processor. I have Tomcat version 4.1 (from Server
Logistics) running on localhost, which I'm switching off before using as
the virtual server. I'm using JVM 1.5 - the Mac default.
The first bug, is not very important but irritating. If this the right
place I'll raise a more complex one.
Take the situation where I have already created a dynamic web project and
a virtual server entitled "Apache Tomcat v4.1" which uses Dynamic Web
Module version 2.3. Now I create a new one. I select New Dynamic Web
Project and a dialogue box appears. I name the project and the target
runtime settings default to "Apache Tomcat v4.1" instead of the original
<None> (and the config to 2.3 instead of <custom>). As soon as I have
entered the name an error message invariably appears to the effect that I
can't use this Target Runtime. However if I change the Target Runtime to
<None> the message goes away, and when I change it back again to "Apache
Tomcat v4.1" the message stays away and all is well.
Either there's a bug or I'm doing something subtly wrong - in which case
it's an interface bug.
