I am using eclipse3,tomcat 5.0.28 and Sysdeo plugin

I created a servlet program in Eclipse when I debug I get this error.

Failed to connect to remote VM. EOF encountered during handshake

Is any configuration error?
Help me ...........

I assume the servlet is running successfully in Tomcat. If so, to debug it from eclipse you need to make some changes to the tomcat start-up script along the following lines:

set JPDA_TRANSPORT=dt_socket
set JPDA_ADDRESS=6666 (You can change this number if you don't like it!)
catalina jpda start

Then, from eclipse create a new debug configuration for a remote Java application and specify the port as defined above.

When you run in debug mode Eclipse will connect to the VM used by Tomcat. Take a look at the Tomcat docs as they explain this better than I can here, but this should help you to get going.
