This page describes various options to configure your development environment.
Editing a server configuration
In order to edit the configuration of a server, double click on server in the Servers view to open the overview of the server as shown below.
- General Information
Edit the fields in this section to change the name of the server or to associate the Geronimo Server with a different Apache Geronimo v2.1 Runtime,or to change the hostname with which the Geronimo Server is associated.
The default User ID is system with a password manager. If your server installation uses a different set of credentials defined in the .propeties file realm
geronimo-admin, change these two fields accordingly. The credentials specified in these two fields are used to detect server status and deployment/undeployment of applications. You may click Manage Account to administer users on local server such as changing password of default user
system, adding a new user into
admingroup and deleting an existing user.
- Test Environment
Select options in this section to change the default configurations for local test environment. See Quick Debugging JSPs of your application for more information about the JSP redeployment option.
All servers use the default publishing settings. The server can be configured to not publish automatically by selecting the Never publish automatically option. The publishing interval (15 seconds) can be changed by providing a new Publishing interval.
Edit the Start and Stop timeouts to change the time limit for completing these operations.
- Publish Advanced
This field specifies the time limit for publishing.
- Port Configuration
The default HTTP and RMI ports are 8080 and 1099 respectively. If your server installation uses a different HTTP and/or RMI port, edit these values accordingly. Altering the values here does not change the corresponding ports in the associated Geronimo Server Runtime.
- Console Output
The default server console output log level is INFO. If you want to enable debug output to console, select DEBUG.
- Server Startup
The settings under this section control the ping thread that polls to the server to detect the server status when the server is started from within eclipse. Ping delay specifies the time the ping thread will wait before polling the server. Ping interval controls the time between successive pings. Maximum Pings is the number of times the ping thread will poll the server to detect a successful startup. If the server startup can not be confirmed, the ping thread will stop the server.
In case of a remote server, Ping interval controls the time between successive pings to update the server status.
- Server VM Arguments
Any additional arguments to be passed on to the server VM can be specified here.
