Description _ lkramolis 2002-04-26 14:12:39 UTC

In HttpServer I miss possibility to start server
and also I would like to get server root url

In XML module I have Transform Servlet used as
transformation preview so I need to start http
server before preview and also I need to construct
url as "server root url" +
"servlet/...TransformServlet". Currently I have to
depend dirrectly on httpservlet but I would like
to rather use 'OpenIDE-Module-Requires:
org.openide.util.HttpServer$Impl' in module
manifest what is much better.

Is it possible to add those methods to

Access through openAPI is deprecated now. Passing to httpserver
Comment 4 _ rkubacki 2006-01-04 14:56:49 UTC
Currently there is no real API (HttpServer from openide is dead).
There is only a workaround - httpserver defines HTTPServer_DUMMY folder on SFS
and TransformServlet can ask for its NETWORK URL and thus start the server and
obtains its port. 

Some sort of minimalistic (friend?) API can be more readable and avoid this
dummy folder. The xml/xsl needs some sort of dependecy anyway.
