Wrong server path but the Eclipse won't let me fix it [message #885276] Tue, 12 June 2012 14:16 Go to next message

Hi,

Whenever I modify and source code, it gets deployed by Eclipse to .metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.wst.server.core/tmp0, and that's correct. But when I go into the server view and click on a server (in this case, Tomcat 6), the overview shows that the path Tomcat defaults to is /org.eclipse.wst.server.core/tmp2. And I don't know where that came from. When I attempt, in the server locations section, to set a custom location to point to tmp0 rather than tmp2, I get the following error:

The server cannot be saved for the following reasons:
[Overview]The server path may not be under the ".metadata" folder of your
workspace unless it is the workspace metadata location.

There is obviously something locked somewhere. Anyone have any idea what or where?

Thanks,

I don't know if you have resolved this by now, but for the record, the
"/org.eclipse.wst.server.core/tmp?" locations are internally assigned
and managed. To ensure that one server can't step on another server's
"tmp?" directory, you aren't allowed to assign a custom location under
".metadata". You have to pick some other custom location. I'm not
aware of a reason you would need to change the "tmp?" directory assigned
to a server.

Note that because of the support for "separate instances" you can have
multiple Tomcat servers, including servers defined from the same
installation provided no more that one from that installation is set to
"Use Tomcat installation...". As you would expect, each would be
assigned a different "tmp?" directory when set for "Use workspace
metadata...". You can add the same projects to all of the servers and
they will be published to each server.

Cheers,
Larry
