Wen,

It's best to use the WTP newsgroup. I've added it to the "to" list of
this reply. I wonder if it's just the"jre" folder nested within the
JDK? I know nothing about this though...

Yes, this is a place where you have the J2EE JDK installed if you are
using the generic runtime as shown in the tutorial. From my
understanding this is only used if you just want to do compilations and
don't want to do debugging or testing.

Hi Dave:

Thank you for the answer.
But where should I go if I want to do debugging or testing?

Thank you again.

Hi Ed:

Thank you very much for telling me about the WTP group. It reminded me
that I was not a brand new comer anymore. :)

Regards,

Wen

Your best bet if you want to do debugging or testing, is to install one
of the supported Server Runtimes (i.e. Tomcat, Jetty, JBOSS, etc).
This will allow you to associate a project with a particular server
runtime, and allow you to do debugging and testing.

I'll ask here since its related to Server Runtimes...

I noticed that the tomcat plugin (the one in the wtp source) has a lot
of custom code in it not strictly making use of the jst and wst
extension points for things like deploying the webapp, etc. Looked like
it was to enable deploying the webapp to a tomcat installation without
having to package it up as a war and deploy that bundle...

is there a recommended mechanic for toggling this kind of behavior on
and off where I can make use of the existing jetty wtp integration that
deploys the bundle and then just enable some special mode that will
generate the configuration required to use an war exploded someplace
else like in the project?
