I have several machines, one of which is a server running OpenSuse 13.1 (if that matters), and another is my usual workstation, also running OpenSuse 13.1. I am installing Eclipse on my workstation. I have Tomcat 7 installed on my server. My first question relates to whether or not I can use Eclipse to deploy an application I have completed locally directly to my server, or do I have to manually use scp to copy the jar file(s) to the server, and then log into that machine and manually move the jar files to the right location in Tomcat's directory tree.

Second, I got just the basic Eclipse binary, but noticed there are quite a number of extra 'packages' for modelling, for C++ programming, &c. None of the prepackaged combinations of modules included everything I want to try to use. Is there an easy way to install these extra packages? Perhaps something I'll see in a preferences or options dialog (my initial exploration of it didn't reveal anything obvious, but that is not yet complete)?

Finally, I want to do some work with Apache's OFBiz (a complex ERP project written as a Java web application, with it's own embedded Tomcat). How would I go about importain all that code, so I can extend it and then (if possible) press a button to deploy it to Tomcat on my server?

Thanks

Ted

I don't think Eclipse has something for deploying, but I've never looked
for it. There are many possibilities including from an ant build script,
from Jenkins/Hudson, Chef, etc.

You copy your WAR file to Tomcat's webapps subdirectory on the server
where Tomcat (if running) will recognize it's there and deploy it.

Check out Help -> Install New Software or Marketplace. However, for me,
the packages aren't always as easily recognized as the convenient (but
separate) packages at eclipse.org.

Maybe someone else will answer this. I don't know about it.

Cheers
