Deploying web app [message #168827] Tue, 09 May 2006 18:40 Go to next message

I've been using Eclipse for some time now, but I know I've only
scratched the surface of what it can do.

When doing web projects, I've found 2 ways to get the Eclipse directory
structure (under workspace) to inter-operate with my web server /
servlet engine's directory structure.

1. Create a "linked folder" (that I call webapp) in the Eclipse project
that's connected over to the web server and servlet engine's directory
structure, and tell Eclipse to put complied class files down in
webapp/WEB-INF/classes, and I put my associated HTML and JSP files under
webapp.

2. Keep everything in the Eclipse project, then do an "Export" (under
the File menu) to create a WAR file over in the web server / servlet
engine's directory.

Option 1 seems like a kludge, but it works.

Option 2 is more sophisticated and works (so far with my simple
testing, anyway), but clicking File, Export, and filling in all the
fields in the wizard every time is a pain, esp. when only testing minor
HTML changes.

Please tell me there's a better way!

You can configure a server in eclipse and set publication strategy in
Window/Preferences.../Server

It doesn't appear that you are using Web Tool's Dynamic Web Project.
Doing so would make Option 2 much simpler. Since your Option 1 is a
fairly simple case, I can't say whether Web Tool's server support would
be as convenient. It would depend on the which servlet engine you are
using, which isn't mentioned.

Cheers,
Larry
