seems like a bug with respect to network paths.
1) Please open a jira with details about OS, jboss tools version and how to reproduce so we can see if it is something we can fix.
2) As a workaround using subst or simply mounting that path as a drive should make it work.
Thank you for the reply appreciate it.
I tried mounting the remote jboss server as a drive and it works.
But I am not able to access the resource from other computers. I have to use http://localhost/test to see the output.
What should I do in order to make the resource available to all network computers?
Appreciate your help.
That's because you mounted remote jboss server and it is like your local server now. It starts on your local host. By default it uses "-b localhost" option to start and that makes it unreachable from other hosts. What you need to do are:
1. Go to Servers View and Open Server Configuration Editor (by double clicking/selecting server and pressing F3/selecting Open from context menu)
2. Change "Host name" field to 0.0.0.0 and save the editor
3. Restart server
Server will start with "-b 0.0.0.0" and that should make it accessible outside, you just have to provide right resolvable name or IP address along with port number if different from default one. Do not forget to check if your port is open on firewall.
I have one more question:
How can I do the same thing (making war's accessible from outside) in NetBeans IDE as well?
I couldn't find a way to change -b 127.0.0.1 they are using by default. I'm not sure it can be overriden somewhere else in JBossAS configuration files. That's a question for JBoss AS forum.
