How does “Run as->Run configurations” work

As I tried to investigate the bug 137822 which is related to the server configuration, I got some idea about how the server configuration works. Anyway I posted some of my findings so that some other students may get some help from my findings to fix some other server related bugs (there are still some server-related bugs need to be fixed in the bug list.).

After Clicking the “Run -> Run Configurations”, the following steps are invoked:

  1. The configuration dialog is opened
  2. The content of the configuration dialog is created and filled with all the controls and actions .

    • Create the Viewer area with the event control and action
    • Create the Edit area with the event control, created the tab, filled the server combo from the tomcat server list in the server view
    • Initialize the values including the arguments in the tabs
    • Display the Run Configurations Dialog and be ready to catch any event including mouse and key activities
  3. Catch the Double Click event/ New_configuration action/Selected Item Change event, fire the actions
  4. Create instances including wc with a unique name such as “New configuration(1)”, configuration dialog and the group tabs, initialize the tab content.
  5. write the new configuration information to a file and update launch manager with the new configuration.
  6. Display the updated configuration dialog

    Hi Shelley,

    Hadn’t seen your last 2 posts on cdot planet as I read all the latest posts there. You haven’t categorized your last 2 posts as open source! : )

    Hi Davoud,

    I knew that. I didn’t get time to finish them yet. I will change the category after I polish them.

    I feel very happy to take this course with you and get lots of help from you. Thanks a lot.

    All the best,
