eclipse server plugin problems

Hello,

I'm using Eclipse's "run on server" option when developing webapps (server is tomcat).
I often encounter "mysterious behaviour". The biggest problem is, sometimes I just cannot get Eclipse to acknowledge changes in my files (e.g., the web.xml). I try restarting tomcat (in the server's view), I try "run on server" again,- nothing helps.
So, today I got impatient and removed the whole webapp under org.eclipse.wst.server.core/webapps/tmp0. I wanted to do "run on server" in a clean state. But now, when I try "run on server" on the project, nothing gets deployed any more, the directory mentioned above stays empty.

What can I do?

Also, I'm very insecure about the org.wst.server.core plugin in general.
For example, I often encounter the error message "No client found that could launch the application" (or so). But, I just click the same command ("run on server") again - changing nothing - and it works. Sometimes I have to click again still, but in the end it always works.
Does anybody also have problems with this plugin? What can one do in such cases? I did not find any documentation on the net on this plugin (there's the api doc of course, but I can't work through all that at the moment...)

I'd be grateful to hear others' experience & ideas,
thanks,
Sigrid

Removing that server and configuring it again will resolve the problem.
