[eclipse-dev] deployment of Eclipse via an application server


Has anyone done any work on deploying Eclipse via a web-based application
server? With Eclipse being essentially java-based it would seem at least
possible. This would allow us the opportunity to provide an GUI IDE to
users working on Grid systems, but avoid the overhead of X, VNC, and the
like. Also it would allow the possibility to allow the application server
to target a back-end node to actually host the compilation, running, etc
of the tasks.

IDE tasks such as compilation and so on are largely transactional, so a
constant X or VNC connection is overkill. Obviously the usual due care
with regard to open files, running processes not being orphaned, etc would
need to be taken.

It strikes me as an opportunity Eclipse could take.
