Eclipse Web Tools Platform 3.0 M4 - New and Noteworthy
Servers View context menu improvements
The context menu of the Server view has been updated to contain
key bindings shortcuts for actions that are common to the Eclipse
Servers View tooltips
We have added tooltips to the Servers view. The default tooltips will display the vendor of
the server and the number of modules it contains.
This is only the default behavior. Adopters can extend this functionality using the org.eclipse.wst.server.ui.serverToolTip extension point.
Server Automatic Publishing setting
Simplified UI for Automatic Publishing settings, by providing one time for all types
of servers, local and remote. The initial value is provided by the server adopter.
In addition to simplifying the UI, the settings are now stored only in the server object and will get carried between workspaces when sharing .server files.
Tooltip for spinners
Tooltips for spinners now provide aid in converting seconds to minutes when appropriate
Cleanup of the Server Preferences dialog
Many of the option in the Preferences dialog have been moved to other location. Some have
been moved into Server editor others are now implicit action. As a result the Preferences
for servers have now been minimized.
