I'm very excited to switch over to Virgo from Spring dm Server, but one thing holding me back is lack of tool support. I became quite accustomed to using Spring dm Server Tools to deploy/debug my app without leaving Eclipse.

Any word on when such tooling would be available for Virgo? I have essentially no PDE skills, but would be willing to contribute in any way that could help.

Thanks, and keep up the good work.

Good news! The dm Server tools will be donated to Eclipse and meanwhile they have been upgraded to support Virgo. Very Happy

See this blog for the necessary info.

That's great news indeed! Just tested it out and it works perfectly.

One thing which may or may not be a bug. I downloaded virgo-kernel-2.1.0.M02-incubation, as I'm not using any of the web features, and the tools initially wouldn't let me select it as a valid server installation.

The workaround was to modify Virgo's lib/.version file and change
virgo.kernel.version
to
virgo.server.version


I'm sure if I downloaded the full Virgo web server I wouldn't have had to take this step, and I'm crossing my fingers that I won't run into any surprises down the road by making this change.

Thanks again.
