How to use Eclipses embedded AppServer [message #474842] Fri, 21 November 2008 17:24 Go to next message

I have a war file that currently runs on an external app server. I would
like to run it on Eclipses’ (our RCP) embedded app server.

I’m not sure of the following:
1) How do I package it in the plug-in? Can I just stick the war in
it? Is there a certain dir structure?
2) What changes do I need to make to the embedded app server? Do I
need to change the web.xml?

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time,

Andrew

Can you clarify what you are wanting to do. Are you looking to create an
application which simultaneously has the Eclipse help system and your
war file running on the same port or are you just looking to create an
RCP application which can also host your web application?

I am trying to have an RCP that can have several webapps running on the
same port with different contexts that uses the internal appserver. I am
using the 3.4 Eclipse build.

While this seems like an obvious thing to want to do but I'm not sure
that the Equinox web server supports this. The help system is launched
in org.eclipse.help.internal.server.WebappManager.start(String) and it
uses JettyConfigurator.start() to start the server. I don't believe
there is any API to start two contexts on the same port, or add a second
context to an existing server instance. This has been requested before
and I thought there was a bug already open but I didn't see one when I
did a quick search.

Chis,
I think the bug# https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=204465
addresses this issue.
