Hi,

I'm looking for an Eclipse plugin that would allow me to select some files/folders (in the project explorer), and trnasfer them to a remote server, using ssh.
Could anyone please recommend such a plugin ?

Please note: I've seen "ssh" mentioned in relation to VSS, but I don't need it for version-control... my oraganization just has some ancient workflow/management regulations, that require developers to copy files (.jsp, .java, .class files) into a remote server, once in a while... I would just like to graphically mark such files in my project explorer, and click some button that would have them sent to our server....

Thanks

You should be able to do that by defining an External Tool. That's how I print in Eclipse under Linux (where the Print Menu is permanently disabled).

The one question is whether you could multi-select files and run the tool, and I suspect you'll find a variable that works for that, but I haven't checked.

You can use the "scp" *n*x utility for file copying, BTW. It uses ssh as for transport.

But the built in VSS system does just this. Simply define a repository, attach it to the project, add files to the project of any type. Then add those files to the repository, or check them out of the repository.

Update as you need. I fail to see how this is different from the normal CVS useage!?

Thanks very much for the reply, Mr. C Lamont Gilbert.

Problem is, we have 2 different machines :
One machine actually holds SourceSafe, keeping versions/history/locks. Another machine is a plain FTP server, where we would occasionally throw file copies, per management request (it's just file system, no versioning: latest copy just overrides all).

Unfortunately, to the best of my knownledg, eclipse can only be configured to have one repository at a time - isn't it so ?
E.g. when you right-click a file (in eclipse) and select "Team->Check in", it would go to either SourceSafe or FTP, but not both... (if am I'm mistaken, that is).
I'm not crazy about switching configuration between those two... I was hoping to get 2 different menu options (eg "Team->Check in" versus "ftp->send" or something...)

Thanks again
