Is it possible to install server through extension or API? [message #221378] Mon, 15 September 2008 13:32 Go to next message

Hi,

I'm trying to bundle a tomcat with my custom eclipse build, but I can't
find a way how I can preregister that server, so that the end user
wouldn't have to configure the Installed Server Runtime environments
themselves.

Is there an extension point or an API I could call to tell the WTP where
the tomcat is installed?

Regards,
Ivar Meikas

It should be possible to do programmatically what the user would have to
do manually. Some startup initialization could detect if its running in
a new workspace and if so, create the runtime and server you want. The
WTP automated JUnit tests that run for the Tomcat plug-in
programmatically create a runtime and server. As a starting point, you
can examine this code:

http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/index.cgi/servertools/tests/o rg.eclipse.jst.server.tomcat.core.tests/src/org/eclipse/jst/ server/tomcat/core/tests/AbstractTomcatServerTestCase.java?r evision=1.16&root=WebTools_Project&view=markup

Cheers,
Larry
