Starting soffice.exe through Eclipse and Tomcat as a Service

Question asked by jamen on Apr 6, 2006
Hi everyone,

I was just wondering whether anyone has their IDE to start open office up when they are debugging/running alfresco through Eclipse.  The start_oo.bat or soffice.exe execution doesn't occur (obviously) unless one uses alf_start.bat. 

I can get the Alfresco source to build and generate the alfresco.war file in my webapps directory for tomcat.  When I try and debug (deploy) open office doesnt' start cos there is no reference to run soffice.exe.

This problem is also applicable to when Alfresco is deployed on Tomcat running as a service.   When is the best time and best way to run soffice. exe in both situations?

soffice "-accept=socket,host=localhost,port=8100;urp;StarOffice.ServiceManager" -nologo -headless

Thanks in advanced
