I guess what you want is a server adapter that does not try to start or stop the server but just gets the local dir (for deployment and proper classpath) and assumes it is running at some specific port for proper "Run as " behavior.
put in jira a request for it.
thanks for your reply max,
it took me a while to understand what is that jira you wrote about, but i figured it out and added a new issue.
i guess that in the mean while i'll have to use two server instances? one that will run as a windows service and one for development?
well, i would just stop the service when doing development and let the server integration do the work...then when you want it to run permenently start the service again.
yeah, that's what i thought..
