The Tomcat support in WTP doesn't currently support remote Tomcat
servers. Thus, you will need to export the web application projects as
WAR files and copy or upload them to the remote system for deployment.

I am also having the same doubt,but here remote server is weblogic server.
Http server is the only one i see when i type host's name other than local
host in the new server wizard for the field server's host name.

I have been searching for "remote deployment in eclipse" and cannot find
answer.
My question is: Is it possible to deploy web application on a server
running on remote machinethan the development one...if it is , please let
me know which servers does eclipse support and the correct approach to use
remote servers.

Regards
Naveen

The server support in WTP doesn't preclude remote servers, but it's up
to the server adapter to deal with the issues. It's much more feasible
for a server that stays running while adding and removing projects and
supports deployment over some port. This avoids issues with remotely
starting and stopping the server and how to move the project's module to
the remote server. Tomcat doesn't make doing this easy, so remote
servers aren't supported. I'm not aware that any of the generic servers
that come with WTP support remote servers either, but I haven't tried
to use them other than for local servers. BEA does their own server
adapter for WebLogic, so check with them to see what is supported. I
played with the Geronimo server adapter once, and I believe it supported
remote servers. However, it has been a while, so I could be mistaken.

Using a remote server does imply that changing one character in a single
JSP will likely require re-deployment of the application. Most find
this too inefficient for their development testing, and thus, use a
local server to speed things up. When it comes time to test the
application on a remote system, that deployment is likely to be done
outside of the WTP server support.

Cheers,
Larry

Are there any plans to support JSR-88 in WTP? This sounds like being the clue to
remote deployment for any server supporting it.

Best regards

You can create an Ant build script to perform the entire operation for you,
You can either use the war task, and then use the FTP task to send it to
the remote server, and then use what method is needed to install the
application. You can also use the telnet task (if you add the additional
jars), and create and populate the file directories. You can then run
whatever operation you need to finish the install.
