Easy Access to Tomcat Users File from NetBeans E-mail
User Rating: / 4
PoorBest 

Introduction

This tip will help you to access the Tomcat Users file from Netbeans IDE.

Details

Whenever I access the Tomcat Manager for the first time in a session, this little dialog box appears:

For details on this from Tomcat's site, click here.

What then happens is that I've got to dig into the IDE's user directory to find a file called tomcat-users.xml, which includes a user called "ide" (which is assigned the role of "manager") together with an IDE-generated password. The digging is a bit frustrating, so I'm using this Ant script instead:

<target name="ShowTomcatUsers">

  <property name="file" 
  location="my-user-dir\jakarta-tomcat-5.5.7_base\conf\tomcat-users.xml"/>

  <exec executable="c:\Program Files\Vim\vim63\gvim.exe">
     <arg value="${file}"/>
  </exec>

</target>

I've just added it to the build.xml file; together with a shortcut so that whenever I need it I can just click a button or a menu item in the IDE to display the file:

Just one of the many benefits of Ant integration in the IDE...
