Purpose

The data manager toolkit designed in COSMOS Design 208274 provided J2EE support using capabilities from the Eclipse Web Tools Project (WTP). We would like to automatically launch the COSMOS web UI within the integrated Eclipse web browser when the developer selects Run on Server for the data manager project built using the toolkit.

Most of the work for this enhancement will be investigative.

Open Issues/Questions

  • How do we start the COSMOS UI from within Eclipse? It seems that the served pages need to be in the workspace for Tomcat to find them. Does it have to be in the workspace, or can it also find plugins from the eclipse/plugins folder? Since by default it tries to open a URL based on the project name.
  • JT reported problems using Run on Server on Linux platforms. Need to investigate.

All reviewer feedback should go in the Talk page for 220639.
