Description William Leonard 2005-02-03 14:25:39 UTC
I installed NetBeans and then attempted to
register a remote J2EE server, however, the option
to configure a remote server isn't presented until
you first set the location of a local server. This
shouldn't be necessary and defeats the point of
trying to connect to a remote server.

This is not a bug, however appserver wizard should explain that the 
local appserver installation is needed even when using the remote 
Reassigning to appserver.

Ccing John and Geertjan.

The issue is that the IDE needs one local server installation before the user can add a 
remote server. The wizard panel asking for this installation location is titled "Enter the 
Application Server location" and the description text above the "Installation Location" text 
field says:

"Enter the directory where a local instance of the Application Server is installed."

(Another issue is that the user can specify this location only once and it is used and can't 
be changed until the user deletes the userdir. But this probably shouldn't be mentioned in 
the text.)

I suggest wording similar to this one:
Specify location where the Application Server is installed. The IDE requires local server 
installation even if you would deploy to a remote server.

Please review and suggest a better wording if needed.

This looks like it was forgotten. Since it hasn't gotten comment I will put in 
the suggested text and mark it as fixed.
