    'JBoss Community' server types from JBoss AS Tools missing in Eclipse Helios

    Elifarley Cruz Newbie

      I have installed JBoss AS Tools into the dropins folder of Eclipse, but when I open the 'Show View' window (<ALT> + <SHIFT> + Q, Q) and search for 'jboss', nothing shows up. I'd expect to see an entry for 'JBoss Server View'.

       

      My installation info:

      Eclipse Java EE IDE for Web Developers.

      Version: Helios Release

      Build id: 20100617-1415

      (Extracted from 'eclipse-jee-helios-win32-x86_64.zip')

       

      JBoss AS Tools:

      http://downloads.sourceforge.net/jboss/as-Update-2010-07-20_00-26-17-H162.zip

      This zip file was extracted to:

      How can I make it work?

          Not sure abou that particular version, but the JBoss Server View has been deprecated and replaced by the WTP Servers view.

           

               Window -> Show View -> Other... Select Select Server-> Servers

           

          You should have all the functionality in the Servers view that you had in the JBoss Server View.

           

          Hope that helps...

            Brian, thanks for pointing that out.

             

            But let me clarify what my biggest problem really is: Once I open the 'Server -> Servers' view and try to add a new server, I don't see a 'JBoss Community' server type.

             

            So this is what I really need: the 'JBoss Community' server types (JBoss AS 5.0, JBoss AS 4.3 ...)

             

             

            Why don't they show up?

              Once I installed them (via the update site http://download.jboss.org/jbosstools/updates/development/), the JBoss AS Tools plugin started working.

               

              So it doesn't seem to be possible to install this plugin via zip file.

                Elifarley, *-update-*.zip's are update zips - not something to install into /dropins.

                 

                Use these zips as local updatesites.

                  Hi,

                  I have a related question...I was able to get the server to work in the servers window, but in the manual it says "we recommend running JBoss in a JVM with a large perm gen space at development time." Is this now already configured by default?

                   

                  Apparently, the old way was to go to the JBoss Server view, select "Edit Launch Configuration", and enter the following for VM arguments:

                  -Xms512m -Xmx1024m -XX:PermSize=256m -XX:MaxPermSize=512

                   

                  There's no place to configure VM arguments in the main Eclipse servers window.

                    Go to Servers View, Double click the server, in the opening server editor click "Open launch configuration" and you can do the same edits.

                    We do some of the above by default, but you can adjust it as you please.

                      Thanks, that worked

                       

                      In case it's helpful to others, here's what I did.... I just changed it from 256MB to 512MB in two places, which you might want to do to make more use of your system's memory (unless it's failry limited in which case you should stick with 256MB, according to the manual).
