Adding a new server, Basic > Externally Launched Server from MyEclipse 2018 CI stream. Description says it “is designed to attach to remote application servers and support full application debugging.” Sounds perfect for my needs, but typing anything other than localhost in the Server’s host name results in error message “The currently selected server type does not support remote hosts.” Doesn’t that defeat the purpose of attaching to remote server as stated in the connector description?
The Externally Launched Server connector is for the server that is launched on the local machine, outside of MyEclipse. The description for the connector should have said “external” instead of remote. We will correct the description accordingly. Thank you for reporting it.
Yes, that’s certainly true, but must say we don’t have many requests for this functionality in MyEclipse.
As a workaround you could try creating a map for the app server’s directory to a local share and then use the Externally Launched Server connector to deploy to that location.
Hope it helps. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
