I don't know much about the way Tomcat can be configured. I want to know how can I configure the Tomcat so that the compiled classes coming from the Eclipse workspace are automatically directed to the Tomcat's classes folder. I have to mention that my application consists of 4 interdependent projects of Eclipse.

I use Tomcat 4.1.3 and I already integrated in the Eclipse IDE.

Thank you.

J2EE apps have a spec defined directory structure.
For this reason, the IDE should (and I believe most do) bend to the structure of the app and container instead of Tomcat being configured to the IDE.

I'm going to move this to the IDEs forum where I think you'll have better luck. If I'm wrong about this, by all means, ask that this thread be moved back here.

Rashid,
As far as i know, Eclipse doesn't support compiling to an external directory. You could use an Ant script to copy over the compiled class files whenever Eclipse compiles.
