Re: [wtp-dev] Alternative Tomcat 5.5 server support

Hi Igor,

That's an interesting idea, and it'll become more important as the .deployables directory with the full J2EE structure of the application will be removed soon. Larry Isaacs (Larry.Isaacs@xxxxxxx) and myself are the two committers for the Tomcat server tools. Can you please send us an email with a bit more detail on what is involved? If you are interested in donating the code we can also start the discussion on how this best fits into WTP, and what timeline we could do this on.

[wtp-dev] Alternative Tomcat 5.5 server support


I am working on (prototype of) an alternative Tomcat 5.5 server support
that does not require creation of intermediate exploded WARs, but
instead "explains" Tomcat how to pick stuff directly from various
workspace locations. Briefly, the idea is to provide custom tomcat
org.apache.catalina.Loader that is able to load webapps spread over WTP
workspace. Special "module map" file is created during publish, the file
essentially tells the loader how map WEB-INF/classes and WEB-INF/lib/*
to workspace.

Is anyone interested?
