WSAD: Are there any application launch events for "Run on Server"? [message #47883] Mon, 03 March 2003 19:23

Hi all,

This is a question for the WSAD tooling people.

We have a small Eclipse add-in that works under both WSW and WSAD.

We have registered a launch listener via a call to
DebugPlugin.getDefault().getLaunchManager().addLaunchListene r(this), because
our add-in needs to get a notification whenever a user application is
launched. We need the name of the project, so that we can determine the
project's directory.

In WSW 2.0.x this works just fine; launchAdded(launch) gets called when it
should, and we can get to the project name via a call to
"org.eclipse.jdt.launching.PROJECT_ATTR" );.

However, when we are running under WSAD 5.0 and create a web application,
things do not work so well. If we create an example web application (like
the JSPandServletExample), right-click on the project and choose "Run on
Server", we also get a call to launchAdded - but that is from the local
server that gets started automatically, and not from the project that we

What I really would like to get is a corresponding launchAdded event when my
application was loaded onto the server, but I don't get anything like that.
The only event is when the server itself starts.

Does anyone know if there is a way for a plug-in in WSAD to do what I've
described here, or are we trying to accomplish the impossible?

Configuration: Eclipse WSW 2.0.1 and WSAD 5.0 running on WinXP Pro.

Thanks in advance,

/Fredrik Abrahamson
