I am having the same issue as here New Force.com IDE (Eclipse) - not auto-deploying?, except the solution chosen isn't working.

I have Build Automatically checked and I've also already selected "Work Online" for the entire project. These two actions are the only solutions made available under the above link. Nevertheless, every time I save the project, nothing saves to the production environment unless I manually go into each component and select "save to server" under the Force.com IDE menu item for that component. I'm using Kepler 2 as well and the latest Force.com IDE Plugin.

I'm able to get the Sandbox Project I have to auto-deploy, just not in production. I can also roll out new changes to the classes/vf pages via the changesets successfully (i.e., my test classes are working)

Please help, this is so annoying.

    You can't save to Production though, you have to deploy. That's the rules.

  • To add on to what @DougB said, I have never deployed a change set from Eclipse to production. I don't think you even can, create a change set in your sandbox and push it

  • @Doug B not true, in prior versions I could save directly to production. Also see link above where jkraybill is able to save directly to production without deploying Commented Aug 5, 2014 at 15:19
  • @EricSSH you should try it some time, super-convenient, especially for minor changes in classes, you don't have to go through the whole deploy process. it's one of the main reasons I use Eclipse Commented Aug 5, 2014 at 15:20
