Eclipse PDT + RSE (FTP) [message #31266] Mon, 19 January 2009 21:46 Go to next message

Hello everyone,

A few days ago, December 16 or 17, I decided to download and start
learning / using the Eclipse IDE platform. I have some background with the
IDE, but nothing extensive.

I come from Dreamweaver when writing PHP-based web applications. I'm
trying to obtain the same functionality in terms of remote publishing with
Eclipse.

I found out about RSE, installed it, and have begun trying to work my way
around in it. It seems like it has the capability to connect to FTP sites
and to work with remote files, however I haven't found any simple way to
really publishing a project.

For those of you unfamiliar with Dreamweaver, pushing files to a remote
site is as easy as highlighting the file or files, and then clicking the
"Upload" button. I would absolutely love to learn how to do this in
Eclipse with RSE.

So, the root of my question is: Is there an easy way to publish an entire
site/project to a remote location over FTP, and is there also an easy way
to publish single/multiple files quickly?

I have done a search over some of the Eclipse newsgroups, including this
one, but I don't really see any answers to my questions. I have found
other pages of people complaining about lack of FTP support in Eclipse,
which RSE seems to solve. However, I still lack an easy way to utilize the
functionality.

Things I've Tried:
I've tried to export a project to FTP, but this does not work. I get path
errors when selecting an active FTP server from RSE connections.

Dragging + Dropping files from a Local site to a Remote site in the RSE
area does work, but is very cumbersome and time consuming if I have many
many files.

I haven't found any other alternatives to these. I would prefer not to
have to mount the remote file system on my box. I use Windows, so the
capability isn't nearly as streamlined as *nix systems.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you!
Scott

Thank you for the links. The system still isn't quite as easy as DW,
but it works.

Another question was raised by watchin the live video. My web host
(and probably many others) create FTP accounts with the home directory
being the root of the website. So, if I use RSE to connect via FTP to
my web space, i'm at the root by default. However, if I want to choose
a remote export point with RSE, I cannot choose the root. I am forced
to choose a sub-folder. If I create a root filter in the RSE list with
a filter string of "./" and then try to point directly to that filter,
I cannot export to it.

Is there a way to export directly to the root of the remote system in
a case like this? As of yet I haven't found a way to do it.

I can export to root without problems.

Select the project, right-click > Export, pick "Remote File System",
click Browse button; browse to your connection and pick "My Home"
(which is / in this case) or "Root"/, OK.

In the export dialog, I now see:
szg-mober-l1.parser-ftp:/
as the export target.

Click finish, it exports.

Or do you try to export differently?

Cheers,
