First of all, I hate to burden this list with questions that I could get
from documentation, but the only documentation I could find was in the help
system, which was very sparse. If there is another better source for full
fledged documentation I would love to get my hands on it. I really feel like
I need to curl up with a few books covering many of the elements of the
Callisto project since most of it I am confused by. I feel pretty lost!

Now to my tasks.

I am currently working with the sysdeo tomcat plugin. It works well, and I
am able to debug within tomcat. The reason I am considering WTP is because I
want to be able to begin testing on a remote server without manually
creating a WAR file and manually placing the file on the server. I am
thinking that WTP is supposed to help me here by allowing me to deploy to
remote servers, but it seems only to want to do local installs. I couldn't
see any options for FTP or secure FTP or anything like that. I only see a
place to browse your local hard disk. Is remote deployment part of the goal
with WTP? I know I could do this with ant, and that's what its for, but I
don't know ant and I just want a nice clean way to deploy rapidly for

The second question is that I am not sure how to create a project that WTP
will understand. It seems that it only knows how to make an ear project, but
I am creating a WAR file for use in tomcat. My current project under sysdeo
is a properly formatted WAR directory. I want to know how to convert this
into something WTP understands.

Finally, I am supposed to be deploying my app to a Geronimo server. I have
been told that Geronimo is a j2EE server that I can deploy a plain old WAR
file. My question is is there a way to do simple "single button" deployment
to a Geronimo server. My sys admin is telling me that to deploy to Geronimo
I can only use a web interface and upload it. This seems very unpleasant to
me because it is so many steps.

Thanks for your help.

Which version of our online documentation were you looking at? We've
significantly expanded the docs since WTP 0.7. Take a look at r/topics/overview.html

Previous Topic:Determining if there are errors in an XML document, programatically.
Next Topic:exploded deployment.
