I can't seem to get the path to my application right in its server.xml type file. I have Tomcat in one Eclipse project and the code I want to debug in another. The file currently looks like this:



When I go to localhost:8080/ethos, it tells me the requested resource is not available. Can anyone suggest what I might be doing wrong?

TIA!

A guess: Should you be using forward slashes (rather than backslashes) on the Mac?

Thanks for the suggestion, but I'm afraid that didn't do it.

Does it work if you run Tomcat outside of Eclipse? I've never had issues.

That's a good question. I don't really know how to run an Eclipse project in Tomcat without going through Eclipse. I'll see if I can figure it out... Thanks for the suggestion!

I had the same problem, however the solution was very easy. I had to Clean Tomcat server in eclipse before restarting it. To be more clear, here is how I set the context in Eclipse,

In the Servers in project explorer, find the Tomcat version you are using, open the server.xml file. Before the HOST closing tag (</Host>) add the context tag with the right parameters, e.g:



then right click on your Tomcat in the Server tab and Clean. Then restart the Tomcat. and you should be good to go.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
