Thanks for considering this
It looks promising with very interesting applications for WTP
you mentioned. I agree with Doug its way too late for Mars at
point, but we should keep up the discussion for the next release
Can you open an enhancement
to track your work, and we can discuss the contribution, the
the current lanuch UI etc....

Question on new contribution
Actually, the dependencies from
and launch bar aren’t any different than RSE and Terminal today.
the CDT native services for terminal type things and that’s
about it unless
I’m missing something.
But it’s really late in Mars to be
much more. When is WTP’s next release? The next minor release
and launch bar should be in Sept with Mars SR-1. We should be
able to add
API and features to support WTP and other new users of these
We can do any required API clean up with a major release at

So, there's a new feature currently being developed in a CDT
with ambitions to be used throughout eclipse, and moved to
conveinent. The feature is named "launchbar", and you can read
about it here: https://wiki.eclipse.org/CDT/LaunchBar
As you can see from the UI, it's intention is to streamline
Looking at it, it *does* seem like it'd be quite a nice
for webtools.servertools, to "debug" "MyServlet" on
"Some Tomcat Server".
I've developed a proof-of-concept which seems to work quite
nicely so far,
but to see it in action you'd need to have org.eclipse.remote
in the ptp repo for now) and a few low-level CDT plugins that it
I currently have my PoC over at: https://github.com/robstryker/jbt-experimental
Is there a place in webtools for such a contribution? I'd be
work with org.eclipse.remote (in the ptp repo) and
(in the cdt repo) to clean up their dependencies and make this
consume, but obviously only if webtools had an interest in such
In its shortest form, it's basically a faster and more prominent

it was a bit hard to find that action, and launchbar is a very
way to make it more likely to grab their attention.
Unfortunately upstream APIs aren't quite what we'd consider
and are still undergoing frequent changes. The o.e.remote
addition is expected
to be the next generation of RSE, and both that and launchbar
Mars to be their 1.0 release.
I'd love to hear if there's interest in such a thing, and what
you'd all have as conditions (ie dep tree, etc).
