I've registered a tomcat server with netbeans for JSF projects. Everything OK.
Now I wan't to create an EE application.
In the step 3 of the project creation: "Server and settings"
the list choice for server "choose server" is empty (I think it should not).
Then I push "add" button, I choose tomcat 6 but when entering
"catalina home" (in my case /opt/tomcat)
it complains "tomcat with the same catalina home folder is already registered"
which is actually true.
Therefore, the "choose server" list continues empty in the "server and settings" step.
Am I missing something or is this a bug?
By the way, this happens in netbeans 6.5.1 in linux (debian) and also
in Mac OSx.
Thanks for your help?
Please evaluate. Thanks.
Which type of EE application do you want to create? Tomcat is only web container hence just web project would be
deployed to this server (not EJB/ EAR project).
Therefore, tomcat can't be used as a server for EE projects?
In the "add server" sub-screen (of step 3 "Server and settings") for
starting a new EE project, there is a list of servers
*including* tomcat 6 (others in the list are tomcat 5.5, glashfish v1, v2 and v3).
If tomcat can't be used, then it would be better not to have it listed
in the "add server" for EE projects.
I'll try glashfish (later).
Thank you very much.
Tomcat is web container only. No a P1.
