I recently switched to Eclipse (coming from Rational tools) and I encountered some problems running an "embedded" Tomcat server. I declared the instance and everything but when I open my web browser and point it to http://localhost:8080 it returns a "directory listing" page (no folders though). Also, no applications deployed via Eclipse IDE are running in these conditions, they all show "resource cannot be found" errors. I tried this with Tomcat 5.0.28 and Tomcat 5.5.16 and the results were the same. I am using Eclipse 3.2.2 and WST 1.5.3. Can anyone please help ?
Thanks a lot, Dan

Do you have index.html or a welcome file configured for your web-app??
If you have not and in your Tomcat web.xml, <param-name>listings</param-name> is set to true, you will get a directory listing...
I use Eclipse 3.2 with WTP and Tomcat. Works well...
