I would like to debug my application which is running on Tomcat through Eclipse.I have already installed the Sysdeo plugin.I can therefore start and stop Tomcat through Eclipse.But how do I debug??

Please advise.

This question usually does better in our IDEs forum.

When groups like Eclipse, embed Tomcat in their app, almost all of the configuration stuff gets customized for that particular application making it difficult for folks familiar with the standalone version to answer these types of questions.

Moving to IDEs...

You set a breakpoint in Eclipse. Sysdeo ties the Tomcat server to debug mode for you.
