WebSphere Integration Developer Tips

Some tips to help make working with WebSphere Integration Developer, particularly with multiple workspaces, that little bit easier:

Show the current workspace directory in the title bar

To do this you need to set the Eclipse -showlocation option which you can do by:
– On Windows modifying your WebSphere Integration Developer shortcut to include -showlocation at the end of the command that is being run.
– On Linux modify the shortcut_wid file which can be found in the directory where you installed WebSphere Integration Developer to include -showlocation after the path to the wid.bin executable.

Open different WebSphere Integration Developer workspaces at the same time

– Start WebSphere Integration Developer in the normal way and choose your first workspace.
– Then start WebSphere Integration in the normal way again but choose a different workspace.

Increase the number of console lines so that you can see the full console output

– Go to Window>Preferences>Run/Debug and increase the console buffer size.

Note: If you choose to set this too high or not limit the console output you can run out of memory.

    first one was good…thanx

  2. Glad to hear you found this useful. I find that I use multiple workspaces often and so showing the location in the title bar is invaluable.

    On a related subject, but for using a single workspace with multiple screens…

    It’s easy to tear off views and put them on a second screen, but you cannot tear out editor tabs to edit different files on each screen. There is a way though: use the Window > New Window menu option and put the new window on your second screen.

  4. Useful tips James – I’d forgotten you could tear off views and using the Window>New Window option to tear out editor panels is also very neat.
