<context id="context">To test artifacts on a server:</context>
<step id="testing_step1"><cmd>In the Project Explorer view from the
Java EE perspective, expand the project that contains the file you
want to test.</cmd></step>
<step id="testing_step2"><cmd>Right-click the artifact that you want
to test.</cmd><info>Examples of artifacts include the Web project
or a file within the Web project (such as a JSP file, servlet, or
HTML file), or an enterprise bean.</info></step>
<step id="testing_step3"><cmd>Select <uicontrol>Run As > Run on Server</uicontrol>.
The Server selection wizard appears.</cmd></step>
<step id="testing_step4"><cmd>Use the radio buttons to specify how

<step id="testing_step5"><cmd>Under the <uicontrol>Select the server

run your application.</cmd><info>The list of available servers, under
the <uicontrol>Select the server that you want to use</uicontrol> list,

configure additional settings, such as configuring settings specific
to the server, and adding or removing projects configured on the server.</cmd>

<info><ph id="testing_step7_ph2">The server tools automatically complete
the following tasks for you: </ph><ul>
<li id="testing_li2">Creates the server and adds it to the Servers
View.</li><?Pub Caret -2?>
<li id="testing_li3">Adds your project to the server.</li>
<li id="testing_li4">Starts the server. (This may take time depending
on the server settings.)</li>

starting servers</uicontrol> check box on the Server preferences page
(<menucascade><uicontrol>Window > Preferences > Server > Launching</uicontrol>
</menucascade>) is selected, the workbench checks to see if your project
and files on the server are synchronized. If they are not, the project
and the files are automatically updated when the server is restarted.</li>
<li id="testing_li6">Depending on the artifact you are testing, the
output of running your artifact may display in the Console view or
in a Web browser that automatically opens.</li>
