we are better suited for helping out with jboss eclipse IDE issues - yours seem to be related to MyEclipse which is supported on their forums.
Umm ... sorry to have have been misleading. I only mentioned myEclipse to explain my ignorance of JBoss IDE.
I am using JBoss IDE, Eclipse 3.1, JBoss 4.0.2.
The Deployment menu (which, by the way, doesn't exist in myEclipse) only appears in the J2EE perspective, and all 3 options (Undeploy, Redeploy, Deploy to) are disabled. I now have two different JBoss servers set up ... what the heck am I missing here?
As for my second question ... I would like to be able to deploy and debug two different projects, one inside the other, using JBoss IDE, can this be done?
Sorry for the confusion,
ah sorry - i misread your first line, didn't see the "used to" part ;)
You need to go select a default server in the preferences to enable those items.
In Window : Preferences : JBoss IDE : Launcher I have tried defining both of my JBoss servers as Default server. Makes no difference.
Any clue on my 2nd question? :)
hmm...works for me ;)
2nd question not really my ball game. But what I do when simply debugging is nothing different from normal eclipse. The source files just need to be on a projects source path and then when you step through code eclipse will look the correct source up.
What is it exactly that you are trying to deploy? The project itself?
The deploy menu is there for JARs/WARs/EARs/XMLs etc..
Howdy, and thanks for the reply.
Well, that's strange. With myEclipse you deploy projects, either exploded or as WAR files. Perhaps EAR as well, I don't know. So how do I deploy a project that has not yet been made into a WAR? I tried right-clicking on JAR files at random in the WEB-INF/lib directory and the Deployment menu doesn't even show up.
Ugh. Someone give me a clue?
