    The interface for and by the people
    What is it?
    Pail is a Java swing Graphical User Interface designed specifically for bukkit.
    Why is it different?
    • Pail is written as a plugin, meaning the same, simple drag-and-drop install server owners have come to know.
    • Pail uses pure Java and no external libraries, eliminating the need for any dependencies.
    • Pail is designed for bukkit servers, allowing more control than any vanilla server GUI.
    • Pail is extensible! Other plugins can hook into Pail to add their own interfaces, creating a single place for server admins to manage their server and players.
    • Pail is completely cross-platform.
    What can other plugins do?
    Pail opens up many opportunities for plugin developers to take advantage of. Plugins can be written solely to add functionality to Pail, or Pail support can be integrated easily into existing plugins. Just imagine being able to edit your permissions groups, view server performance, or manage your world's economy all from a single interface!

    For Developers:
    You can start developing for Pail now! The API currently consists of several methods for adding your components to the interface. To add a tab for your plugin to the Pail GUI, pass the title of your plugin's tab and the JPanel containing your interface to:​

    PluginManager pm = this.getServer().getPluginManager();
    ((Pail)pm.getPlugin("Pail")).loadInterfaceComponent("Title", new JPanel());
    For more method descriptions, the JavaDoc is available here.

    Just drop Pail.jar into your plugins folder. That's it!

    • Convenient access to player related functions
    • Interface for editing server settings

    • Searchable console (with regular expression support)
    • Much more!

    is there a way to make pail minimize to system try ? or is there a way to add that option ?
  4. Offline


    I have a non-released version of pail plus for that... ;)
  5. Offline


    sorry my english isnt good its hard to understand to me what u just said

    i got pail plus but it still dont minimize to try so what am i missing ?
  6. Offline


    It means, this feature is planned to be added soon!
  7. thats not good, interactions whit the server object need to occor on the server thread, or else bad things can happen, from

    • don't call API methods from other threads (with some exceptions)
    • don't put the main thread to sleep
  8. Offline


    oh that i understand
  9. Offline


    Oh I misunderstood you. I thought you were referring to resource intensive tasks that would cause lag.

    Interactions using api methods are all done using the bukkit scheduler unless thread-safe.
  10. Then its ok, then I will implement this at my multiworld plugin.
  11. Offline


    This hasn't been updated in a long time. I can tell you there's MANY safe API calls at the moment. :)

    @feildmaster tested for 1.0.1 with 100% no bugs. You and @escape definitely have made a great plugin.
    When you try to reload the iConomy plugin it dosent do it right. When ingame non of the iConomy commands work if you reload it. You have to restart the whole server. PLEASE FIX
  14. Offline


    Since this is an iConomy issue, I would suggest posting it that plugin's thread.
  15. ok im new to this. Sorry.

    This GUI could use a Server information box with CPU usage, Memory usage, and Network stats.

    This is the coolest thing. Only thing that would make this better is atomatic backup

    Now if only it was remote :) than ppl on VPS would be glad. E.G: Lets say you run your server in linux (VPS) but then Pail window pops up at your computer with Windows.

    If you're using any custom windows themes, try disabling them.

    im sure this is a stupid question but how do i use server ip setting? i mean can u give me an example, i have peoples on my server right now or id play around with it
  26. Offline


    if your ip is FOR EXAMPLE and you run 1 server than you server ip line empty
    but lets say you wanna rund 2 servers on 1 pc than only option for you is to give them different ports and as 1st server is

    for other one you would need to add different port well when default port is 25565 which use servers if not port is specified so for example for other server you make port with higher number

    like this and than you can run 2 servers on 1 machine and from what i think than this IP will show up in api

    server ip and port is changeable in server properties in main bukkit directory

    Hey! LOVE the plugin! It's been a true lifesaver for as long as I've owned Minecraft. When I couldn't use it to start my server properly I just used vanilla until it worked.

    I'm having one small problem, however. I can't seem to issue the soft-reset like I used to. Each time I try the server goes crazy and I have to turn it off then on again. I change things too often while I'm testing and I'd like to actually kick everyone off as little as possible. Could you please help me?

    Are there any errors you are able to post? Possibly more information to help us figure out what is happening?
  30. Offline


    There aren't any errors that go along with this. I mean I have a few, but they go away when I make new updates and both with and without any errors I get the same problem. I can't really explain anything. It happened when I updated to the newest server, that's about it. I couldn't use the launcher right away so I had to make the RUN file. Does that help? Do you guys just not have an update for 1.0.1 servers yet?

    It should work fine for 1.0.1 servers though.
