Please use a plugin like sysdeo [to start and stop Tomcat] and also a ANT script to copy the class files after compilation.

Though Tomcat reloads the context if it finds class file changes in DEV mode, you may need to restart in few scenario [like changes in struts-config.xml]

With Eclipse 3.3 and WTP you don't need any other plugin.
