W4T Eclipse uses an internal server (named W4WARP) to launch web applications from within the Eclipse IDE.
Instead of a class with a static
main() method, the launcher
needs to know a class that is a subclass of
WebForm to run it.
Select one in the Package Explorer and choose from the menu
Run > Run As ... > W4 Toolkit
Application. The external browser opens in a new window and shows the
WebForm. (Of course the external browser must be specified - see the
Configurations section below.)
After you have run a
WebForm once, a shortcut to that
particular launch configuration has been added to the Run menu,
you can relaunch the same form again from that shortcut.
Similarly to running a
WebForm you can debug it - simply choose
Debug As ... instead of Run As .... You can set
breakpoints and single-step through the application as usual.
From the menu Window > Preferences you get into the standard preferences dialog, which has a section with W4T Eclipse specific preference pages. The settings for the server are on the W4WARP page.
To launch a
WebForm in an external browser, it is necessary
that you specify the path to the browser in the preferences dialog. Browse
to the executable of your favourite browser.
