You can start the tomcat server using tomcat.exe. In tomcat old version there is file called start.bat. But in this latest version there is no such file. I think they had modified start.bat into tomcat.exe Just try it.

classLoaderException when tried to start from eclipse plugin
so please help me start tomcat with eclipse plugin Thank you very much Shiva
I think if you add tomcat-plugin to your eclipse, then you open eclipse,go to Window->Preferences, and you will see Tomcat in the left and click it,set the correct version of tomcat and select the location of Tomcat Home. I think if these are set correctly,your problem will be solved.Hope this helps you.
