Testing the EMS Management Application
Eclipse IDE has a provision to start the WebNMS server and Application client within the environment. This provision can be used to test the code while developing. You can test the newly added classes and you can modify some of the files and restart the WebNMS server to reflect the changes made in the source. This can be effectively used to test the code during development of the project itself.
Start the server using WebNMS > Launch > Start WebNMS Server menu.
Start the client using WebNMS > Launch > Start WebNMS Client menu.
Once the server and the client are started, you can debug your sources with the server / client using Run > Debug History > Start WebNMS Server_<Project name> / Run > Debug History > Start WebNMS Client_<Project name> menus.
You can also run your sources with the server / client using Run > Run History > Start WebNMS Server_<Project name> / Run > Run History > Start WebNMS Client_<Project name> menus.
Once the project is Compiled successfully, it is necessary to bundle all the modified application and files of your project into a single file called a NAR. This can be done by Packaging the Project. To Package the Project , refer to the section Packaging the Project for more details.
To view the changes in WebNMS, the NAR should be installed over WebNMS. This task can be performed using the Nar Installer present in the Deployment Wizard. You can invoke the Deployment Wizard by using the WebNMS > Tools > Deployment Wizard menu. For more details , refer to the section Installing Eclipse Project in WebNMS
