Re: [wtp-dev] questions on local/remote support for generic server adapters

Hi Rochelle,

I'm not sure I understand your question. The field is always editable, but the wizard already uses SocketUtil.isLocalhost() to determine if you are typing a local hostname. If you type anything that is a remote host or IP, it filters out server adapters that only support local servers.

Hi Max,

Thanks for your response.  If I understand it correctly, it sounds like
you want to keep the ability to enter something other than localhost in
that field, but that something is another name for the local host.  Is
that accurate?  If so, your pointer to the isRemote and isLocal code was
helpful, but leads me to ask my next question:

There is a method isLocalHost in
org.eclipse.wst.server.core.util.SocketUtil which seems like it should
be used for this exact purpose.  It seems like the field could remain
editable, but that the framework should enforce isLocalHost returns true
for any changes.

Do you agree?  If so, I will file it.  If not, please tell me what
usecase I have missed.
