Changing "“Always use this server..." option [message #213945] Fri, 16 May 2008 13:50 Go to next message

The project I'm working on creates our own custom projects that use some
of the WTP facets and the Run on server features. I've noticed that on
"ordinary" dynamic web projects, there is a property section, Server,
where the user can change his mind if he once checked the "“Always use
this server..." option when launching his app.
For some reason, our projects don't have that properties section and our
users don't have a way to change the setting once they check the box.

I have 2 questions:

1) Is there a straightforward way to get that section included on our
project properties? Is it tied to the "Dynamic Web Module" facet? If so,
is there any other option (our projects have their own web deployment
facet that conflicts with "Dynamic Web Module")?

2) Where is the setting stored so that I can offer a work-around way to
clear it and get the user back to where they are prompted to select the
server again?

TIA,
Eric

Bump - any ideas? Should this go to the dev mailing list instead?

For #2, WTP server related "info" often ends up under
".metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.wst.server.core". This setting appears
to go in the modules.xml file.

Cheers,
Larry
