Description Ana.von Klopp 2004-03-24 00:34:01 UTC
This means that neither NB 3.5 nor NB 3.6 can be 
used to develop web services... 

The UI should make it clear what criteria are used 
to determine the version and allow the user to 
override the decision that the plugin made. 

This is probably a P1.
Comment 1 Ana.von Klopp 2004-03-24 00:39:44 UTC
Pavel B says the criteria is whether there is a bin/catalina.xml file. 

"touch catalina.xml" works, or whatever the dos equivalent is a 
workaround for this problem. 
Comment 2 Marek Fukala 2004-03-25 16:03:14 UTC
One think we can do is to add a description of this problem together
with a workaround into release notes. 
The workaround is quite easy: Create a dummy file catalina.xml in
$JWSDP_HOME/bin and create a directory named temp directly in the
$JSWDP_HOME directory.
The problem is that we have never tested this combination (IDE+JWSDP)
before and since we are out of resources we wont be able to do so for
I have tried to conform the JWSDP installation with the IDE
-requirements- and encountered a few differencies/problems with the
integration in a very short time. The integration itself works, but I
have seen some other bugs.
The question is if want to encourage users to use the JWSDP since we
are not sure if it's safe. Maybe, it would be better to say: it's
-unsupported- and not tested, but if you really need to do it, there
is a workaround how to do that.

Waiver approved.
Comment 4 Patrick Keegan 2004-04-01 17:36:00 UTC
Chris, could you provide the wording for this one?
Comment 5 Chris Kutler 2004-04-06 23:42:59 UTC
For release notes:

Description: If you try to add JSWDP 1.3 Tomcat using the Add New
Server action, the dialog will not let you add it because it does not
recognize the installation as a Tomcat 5 server. 

Workaround: Do the following steps so that the Add New Server dialog
box recognizes the installation as a Tomcat 5 server.

1. Add a directory to <JWSDP-Install-Dir> named temp.

2. Add a file to <JWSDP-Install-Dir>/bin named catalina.xml.

NOTE: The JWSDP Tomcat server has not been tested with this version of
the IDE and its use is not supported.

BTW, JWSDP 1.4 is now released, we should target this release.
Comment 7 Sherold Dev 2004-07-01 16:28:35 UTC
This bug seem to be already fixed. I've tested it with
tomcat-jwsdp-1.4 and it works fine.
