Sandeep,
See Sysdeo's Tomcat plugin. It suports Eclipse 3.1.

First, uninstall the plug-in. You don't need it. All you need to do is enable remote debuging in Tomcat and connect from Eclipse through the Debug view.

Just to clarify:
You don't need the plugin for remote debugging. You do need the plugin to launch Tomcat from within Eclipse.

hi,
from link that Jeanne given , there is an installation section.
i tried it and it work!


Installation

*

This plugin does not contain Tomcat.
(Download and install Tomcat before using this plugin).
This is a desing choice not to include Tomcat in the plugin distribution, this way everyone can choose a Tomcat version, it is easy to switch from one Tomcat version to another
*

Download tomcatPluginVxxx.zip
*

Unzip it in /plugins
*

Plugin activation for Eclipse 2.1 :
select menu 'Window->Customize Perspective...', expand 'Others' and check 'Tomcat'
*

Plugin activation for Eclipse 3.0 :
select menu 'Window->Customize Perspective...->Commands', and check 'Tomcat' in 'Available command groups'
*

Set Tomcat home : Window -> Preferences, select Tomcat and set Tomcat home
*

This plugin launches Tomcat using the default JRE checked in Eclipe preferences window.
To set a JDK as default JRE for Eclipse open the preference window : Window -> Preferences -> Java -> Installed JREs.
This JRE must be a JDK (This is a Tomcat prerequisite).
*

The plugin sets itself Tomcat classpath and bootclasspath. Use Preferences -> Tomcat ->JVM Settings, only if you need specific settings.


maybe this help
