Server Tools

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 Platform.



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.


    Tooltips

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.

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.
