TCP/IP Monitor doing nothing [message #87605] Mon, 28 March 2005 01:27 Go to next message

Hi,

I'm using
* Eclipse 3.1M5
* WTP 1.0M3
* Web Services (installation as described in http://www.eclipse.org/webtools/wst/components/ws/download_i nstructions_for_jars.html).
* Tomcat 5.0.28
* j2sdk1.4.2_04
* Windows 2000

The Web Services TCP/IP Monitor appears to doing nothing.

In the WTP Servers view I've selected a server -> context menu -> "Monitoring" -> "Monitor Port 8080 (HTTP)" -> checked.
Then I've started the server in debug mode.
Checking the Properties in the TCP/IP Monitor view shows a (started) monitor entry: localhost:8080 / HTTP / 14333 (local monitoring port)
Then I've called http://localhost:8080 in the browser - all the web applications on localhost:8080 are working well.

I've tried the server in run and debug mode. I've tried other local monitoring ports. Nothing helps.
There is no error in the Eclipse Error log.
Am I missing some configuration or preperation job?
Or is the monitor not supposed to work in the current state?

I tried the monitor with Eclipse 3.1M4 / WTP 1.0M2 / Web Services before as well (completely different installation) - didn't work either.

Big thanks for help,
Chily

I think I got the point:
I have to call the local monitoring port through the browser's URL.

So if monitor entry is: localhost:8080 / HTTP / 14333 (local monitoring port)
then I have to call http://localhost:14333/ instead of the server's http://localhost:8080/
Right?

That's right Chily.

But this way, you get one problem:
The monitor always forwards the wrong request URL: Not the real
Browser's URL (here with port 14333), but the server's URL (here with port 8080).
And it even sets the request header "host" to the wrong port (here 8080).

So the Java methods request.getRequestURL() or request.getServerPort() don't
return the URL from the Browser's address bar, but the server's URL.

This is especcially a problem, since response.sendRedirect() (or the JSP tag
<jsp:forward>) use the wrong host as well.
So it's not possible to klick through a web application using the TCP/IP
monitor if the website uses redirects. You always end up calling the server
directly, not through the monitor port.

The only workaround I found so far is to set the monitor's host/port as proxy in the
browser's settings and call the server's host in the browser's address bar. But
this way it's not possible to call any other website from the browser than the
monitored application.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Chily

Hi Chily,

Any update on your TCP Monitor problem ?
Have you solved it in M3 ? If not, have you filed a bug report ?

Is it still happening in M4 ?

Thanks,

Laurent

Thanks man,


I was about to break my head against the wall as this issue was taking considerable amount of my TIme.

By, the way what is "Local monitoring Port". Why would I need as my server is already running on 8080?

This is quite confusing. Could make this understand in a more better way.
