[Wtp-wst-dev] Generic/Custom Server Runtime support

List members:

** Sorry for the double post, but I sent this to wtp-dev and haven't seen any activity.  If there is a better list to send my questions to, please advise. **

I am trying to add tooling support for Red5 which is an Flash Server.  In particular, I'm trying to add Server runtime support to our application server.  For a quick screencast of the functionality, please see here:

Here is some information about my plugin.  The Server runtime is configured using the generic server definition which uses a server definition file and an Ant build file.  I'm not sure if I've chosen the correct implementation.  I think that I might have been better off using a custom server runtime.  However I understand that it requires more effort which I'm willing to do if I can't fulfill all of the plugin requirements.

  • deploy and run the application
  • debug the application (like Tomcat, etc...)
  • start and stop the server

What I have working currently:
  • deploy and run the application
  • start and stop the server

I have a few questions:

  1. Is this the correct list to post these questions to?
  2. Can a generic server have debug support, by clicking "debug on server"?
  3. The application server does have "Remote Java Application" debug support using jdwp.  Is this how the other server runtimes debug their applications (servers like tomcat, etc...)
  4. Where can I find the source for the Tomcat server plugin source code?  I've seen the glassfish source, but haven't looked too much into it yet.
  5.  Is there any place where I can find more information on custom server runtime plugin development?  I've checked a lot of resources but it seems many just talk about the generic server definition support like I currently have.
Thanks in advance for any information you can provide.  I look forward to any tips/pointers etc.. that may help me add debugging support to my plugin.
