I'm using Oracle Workshop for WebLogic 10.3 and I'm hoping someone can answer some setup/config questions.
When I double click on the server (WebLogic Server v10.3 at localhost) a window opens with various settings that manage how workshop and weblogic work together.
Under "Startup & Deployment" I have the following turned on:
Launch WebLogic server in Eclipse console
Always start WebLogic Server in debug mode
Ignore project compilation errors when publishing (I have this turned on because of errors in a portal project, the errors aren't inmportant, and don't prevent the project form running)
Run stand-alone web module directly from workspace
So, first question, with these settings I was able to quickly switch to debug mode, with out restarting the server, now the server restarts whenever I turn debugging on. What have I done that has stopped this working correctly? How can I get it to start debugging without a full restart?
next question, what happens if I turn on "Start WebLogic Server in Express Mode"? As far as I can tell nothing happens.
Lastly, under "Automatic Publishing" I have it set to "Never publish automatically", if I choose another setting workshop essentially freezes because it's constantly publishing. So whenever I make a change, even in a jsp, I need to remove the project, then re-add it to see my changes in the browser. This is frustrating, not just because it takes 8 or 9 minutes (8 or 9 MINUTES!!!), but because the project doesn't run properly until it is redeployed. You'd think that if it needs to be re-deployed, then none of my changes should matter on the server until it is re-deployed.
So, my question is, Is there any way to get this re-deployment to happen faster?
