Testing Scenarios with Bug 254831

I’ve tested various scenarios with bug 254831. First of all I tested the scenarios in the “Web” perspective, then in the “J2EE” perspective. Both revealed same results. Then I tested using different servers. I received error message for all Apache Tomcat servers, but the error message were different for each. As mentioned in the previous post, the error mesage appears when using the “Download & Install” method in the “Add New Server” wizard. The error messages were of the same type, but pointed to different folder.

Trying to Download and Install “Apache Tomcat v6.0”, the error message displays:

The Tomcat installation directory is not valid. It is missing expected file or
folder lib/jasper-el.jar.

Trying to Download and Install “Apache Tomcat v5.5”, the error message displays:

The Tomcat installation directory is not valid. It is missing expected file or
folder common/il8n.

Trying to Download and Install “Apache Tomcat v5.0”, the error message displays:

The Tomcat installation directory is not valid. It is missing expected file or
folder common/lib/servlet-api.jar.

Trying to Download and Install “Apache Tomcat v4.1”, the error message displays:

The Tomcat installation directory is not valid. It is missing expected file or
folder lib/naming-factor.jar.

Trying to Download and Install “Apache Tomcat v4.0”, the error message displays:

The Tomcat installation directory is not valid. It is missing expected file or
folder lib/naming-factor.jar.

As shown, the error occurs for each version of the server, but the directory varies for all. For the remaing servers on the list in the wizard (for example, IBM), you have to manually download them yourself, and point the wizard towards that specific folder. The “Download & Install” feature is only available for the Apache servers, so this cannot be specific error cannot be tested this way with other servers.

For all servers, including Apache, when downloading them manually, and pointing the wizard towards that folder, the server wizard completes successfully. Only when using the “Download & Install” feature, the wizard does not complete. More research into why the different directories is needed, as well as some debugging. I will update when more information is found.
