Description Vince Kraemer 2008-09-11 19:50:50 UTC
This spans some plugins (GF and TC for sure) and j2eeserver.

here is a sequence that seems bad...

register tomcat or GF
create a web app that targets tomcat or GF
run the web app (use run off the right-click menu for the project)
   the browser opens and displays the index.jsp
switch to the Services explorer
drill down to that app that was just run.
select Stop from its right-click menu
switch back to the project explorer
Use Run again
   the browser opens and shows a 503
Add a servlet to the web app
Use Run again
   the browser opens on index.jsp

I expect the result of run 2 and run 3 to be consistent.

I think the IDE should force the web app to be started/executable/whatever when the user uses the Run item on a project
(or the Run Main Project).
Comment 1 Vince Kraemer 2008-09-11 21:31:49 UTC
side note: with DOS enabled... the app switches from stopped to runnable in situations where the user's last direct
action related to the project's "runnability" was to direct the IDE to make the app stopped.


new web app 4 tomcat
Run the app
   the index.jsp appears in the browser
set the app to stopped state
Reload the app in the browser
   the app shows up as 503.
add a servlet to the app (while the app is DOS)
Reload the app in the browser
   The index.jsp shows up... but the last action on the project as to do a save...
   in this situation I would expect to see the 503 still...

As this hasn't been ever reported by the real (outside world) user and there are some complications (see below), I don't
think we should take care of this in 6.5.

The trouble is with server plugins implementation. While some of them implement start, others don't. Some plugins even
do not provide stop action etc. The reason why plugins are so different is poor jsr-88 design and its implementation
(server vendors). We can take look into thi after 6.5.
