How to change the target server after creating a Dynamic Web Project? [message #207653] Tue, 29 January 2008 15:57 Go to next message

I created a "Dynamic Web Project" using Apache Tomcat 6.0. Now I need to
change this project to run on Tomcat 5.5. How do I do that?

When I want to change Window => Pref's => Targeted Runtimes then only
Tomcat 6.0 is listed. If I check "Show all runtimes" I see Tomcat 5.5
but it is grayed/deactivated, i.e. I can not select it. The

When I right-click the project and select Run... => Run On Server... I
get a list containing both servers, but if I select Tomcat 5.5 here then
I get an error "The server does not support version 2.5 of the J2EE Web
module specification".

When I right-click the project and select Properties => Project Facets
I see "Dynamic Web Module version: 2.5". If I click the Modify
Project... button I get a dialog "Modify Project Facets". If I select
Dynamic Web Module => Version 2.4 here I get an error telling me "Cannot
change version of project facet Dynamic Web Module to 2.4".

So, how the heck do I change the target platform for this project such
that I can run it on Tomcat 5.5???

I don't believe the "Dynamic Web Module" facet supports modification.
Since your current project specifies "2.5", you won't be able to set the
target runtime or deploy to Tomcat 5.5 since it only supports up through
version "2.4". I would recommend creating a new project with "2.4" as
the "Dynamic Web Module" facet, which choosing the Tomcat 5.5 runtime
would accomplish. If you plan to deploy on either, make sure the Java
facet is set for the lower of the versions your Tomcat 5.5 and Tomcat
6.0 are running with, if there happens to be a difference. Then copy
the content from the old project to the new one and port any web.xml
changes necessary.

Cheers,
Larry

Hi Larry,
I considered your procedure a bit tedious and so I decided to set things =
straight "manually". Just in case anybody has to do the same ever - here =
is what I had to do:

In .classpath I changed:
<classpathentry exported=3D"true" kind=3D"con" =
path=3D" org.eclipse.jst.server.core.container/org.eclipse.jst.server .tomc=
at.runtimeTarget/Apache Tomcat v6.0"/>
to:
<classpathentry exported=3D"true" kind=3D"con" =
path=3D" org.eclipse.jst.server.core.container/org.eclipse.jst.server .tomc=
at.runtimeTarget/Apache Tomcat v5.5"/>
=20
In .settings/org.eclipse.jst.common.project.facet.core. I changed:
classpath.helper/org.eclipse.jst.server.core.container\:\:or g.eclipse.jst=
..server.tomcat.runtimeTarget\:\:Apache\ Tomcat\ =
v6.0/owners=3Djst.web\:2.5
to:
classpath.helper/org.eclipse.jst.server.core.container\:\:or g.eclipse.jst=
..server.tomcat.runtimeTarget\:\:Apache\ Tomcat\ =
v5.5/owners=3Djst.web\:2.4
And in .settings/org.eclipse.wst.common.project.facet.core.xml I =
changed:
<runtime name=3D"Apache Tomcat v6.0"/>
....
<installed facet=3D"jst.web" version=3D"2.5"/>
to:
<runtime name=3D"Apache Tomcat v5.5"/>
....
<installed facet=3D"jst.web" version=3D"2.4"/>

I am not sure whether ALL of these changes are really necessary, but I =
changed them all for consistency.

After that the project turned out to "Tomcat 5.5 compliant"!

Michael

This will fix the facet and target runtime of the project, but not its
content or related metadata. If you know the content didn't contain any
use of "2.5" features, then you are probably okay. I'm not aware of any
cached info under the ".metadata" folder of your workspace, but it's not
my area of expertise. At least make sure the content of your web.xml is
to "2.4" spec and not "2.5".

Cheers,
Larry

Don't forget to change the deployment descriptor(web.xml) header. There
is several places where the 2.5 is referecing to jee, but in the 2.4
cases it used to be j2ee. In addition the version number is also
referenced in the DD.

I second the comment from Larry. If you know the project doesn't use any
2.5 functionality you are probably okay with these changes.
