Re: [wtp-dev] Extending WTP ?

The servertools APIs can be found in org.eclipse.wst.server.core and org.eclipse.wst.server.ui. There are a number of extension points for defining runtimes, servers, methods to deploy, etc. As for projects outside the workspace, you can find a way to do this with creating your own custom module factory to create a representation of this project.

I wouldn't call it prohibitive, but it would definitely take some code-diving for you to get it right.

We are developping a product which can be customized using eclipse. In order to ease the customisation we would like to introduce WTP to start/stop/debug/publish to the server. Our product can be run on several platform (mainly WebLogic and WebSphere) and we have an installation process which install our product on those servers. I've seen we can define a generic server with Ant scripts to start/stop the server as well as to deploy modifications to the server. However I'm wondering if running ant (in a new jvm?) each time a ressource is modified is fast enough ? And if extending WTP with our new server is a hard work ? (we have good eclipse plugin developpment skills). In other word, is the effort to develop a new server affordable only to server vendors/open source community ? One other question related to how WTP is organised. In our case, the ear and war doesn't change much. The pages are created in spearate java project. Therefore in many case it doesn't make sens to have the ear and the web projects in the workspace. Does WTP support this or will we be forced to have those project in the workspace ?
