Hi Joe, I assume you know the fact that you could configure WDSC to launch an external browser, instead of using the built-in one. I typically use this approach, just cuz WDSC's version doesn't have all the features that IE offers (and, in some obscure cases, it behaves somewhat differently then the full version of IE). So, this will also let you bring up the browser without 'launching' anything from WDSC. Note, that Firefox and/or Netscape are also valid configuration options. Hope this is of some help.

Mike! Hold on! Don't panic! I've complained about this particular issue before, and I never seemed to get anyone's attention. Maybe now that it's someone besides me, they'll listen <grin>. Anyway, the short answer is that WDSC V6 took this feature away. How or why, I don't know, but whereas in V5 you could launch a servlet using a simple right-click and debug on server, you can no longer do it in V6. The last time I brought the issue up, I got the response that I could map the servlet in my Deployment Descriptor and then launch it from there. The fact that this means I have to keep my descriptor open when I didn't have to before (not to mention having to map the servlet in the first place) didn't seem to make any impression. The fact that every other type of runnable item, from simple Java classes to HTML to JSP, could be launched using a right-click also didn't phase them. So, the long answer is that if you want to launch a servlet using a right-click, you must map it in your deployment descriptor (under Servlets) and then you can launch it from there, NOT from the source. Otherwise, you have to type the servlet address into the browser (or write an HTML page to launch it). Which brings up one other issue: does anyone know how to bring up a browser window inside of WDSC without actually launching anything? Sometimes I just want to type in an address to test something, and unless I already have a browser window up, I can't do it. I have to launch something. Joe
From: Mike Burdette Hi all: Well, I made the move from WDSC 5.0 to WDSc 6 (Rational). Of course I burned all bridges and opened up my workspace with WDSc 6 without a
backup. After creating multiple workspaces and trying several different ways, I
unable to debug my web application in Rational at all. After creating a new workspace and importing my existing projects, when I select my
and choose to "Debug on Server", I am told, "Could not find a server to run the selection." The next time I try to debug it, I am not given the "Debug on server" option, only "Debug". When I select this, I am
with the "Create, manage, and run configurations" dialog box. I select
6.0 under configurations and it looks like a new config is being set up.
am told however that : " The Enterprise Application must contain at
one Application Client." However the only option I am given under the Application Client module is the "Default" option, which is apparently
the right answer, but it is the only answer you can choose. I am frustrated, and tired of trying the same thing over again with the same results (yes, I am living this definition of insanity). I have used WDSc 5.0 for 2 years, and thought I understood how it worked, but I was very wrong it appears. Does any of this sound familiar to anyone and can you offer any help? I have followed the steps in the help section and tutorials of WDSc, but
not getting the results advertised.
