how to change the filesystem location of a wtp server? [message #223146] Sun, 26 October 2008 11:42 Go to next message

Hi all,

I have a server application that launches a Windows shell script and it
fails because the paths are too long.
Another case is when I need to open/delete/move/copy files under the WTP
server managed by Eclipse.

On Windows XP there is a problem when paths are longer than 250
characters and the WTP server path on my workstation is already 102
characters long. Hence, I am looking for how to make Eclipse manage its
WTP server under an alternative filesystem location.

Is this possible?


Thanks in advance,
Adrian.

P.S. I know about https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=119588
and I am not complaining about deployment problems.

Found it. I will answer my own question.
1. Remove all published modules and republish
2. In the Server Locations section specify the desired Deploy Path
