Hi,

I am trying to integrate Eclipse with Tomcat using Sysdeo.
With different versions of each of these softwares,
I am unsure which set (versions) works well. Could somebody advise please.

Thanks,
Jaya

I've just set this up yesterday and working with no problems:

eclipse: 3.2.0
tomcat: 5.5.17
sysdeo eclipse plugin: 3.1.0

This is on a windows XP machine. You will also need Java 1.5 installed (not 1.4.2). My version is 1.5.0_08.

Let me know how you get on.

Cheers, Jared.

This is exactly the setup I am using too:
eclipse 3.2.0
sysdeo tomcat plugin 3.1.0
tomcat 5.5.17
But I'm running on Linux. The install all seems ok, but I'm having what I believe are permission problems starting/stopping tomcat and deploying to the tomcat directories. I don't want to just blindly give all permissions throughout, or change all the owner/groups on dirs and files.

Is there a guide that addresses required permissions on Linux to use this setup for JSP + Servlet development?
Thanks,
Stephen

Usually you need to be root to start and stop tomcat. On a dev box, I would just give myself all privileges (or develop as root). You aren't developing on a production box are you?

Moving into a production environment is a different story with permissions. But that is the deployment stage, not development -- I treat them differently.

Cheers, Jared.

You don't need to be logged in as root to install/develop/start/stop Tomcat. In fact, running as root is never a good idea.

For development, a regular account is preferable. You can either create a regular user account for Tomcat and use that, or you can use your own account. Either way, install Tomcat in a subdirectory of the user's home directory.

The only difficulty is that you will have to use a port above 1024, such as the default Tomcat port, 8080. If you want to use the standard HTTP port 80, you can get around this by starting Tomcat with sudo.
