I Tried to do Tomcat setup in Eclipse Ganetmade,I did the following things

1)Installed Java
2)Downloaded Eclipse and Tomcat 6
3) Extracted both to different location
4) In eclipse, File->Other->Server->apache ->Tomcat 6.0 server
5) Then I selected Tomcat Location
6) If I start the server then server started but If I tried the URL http://localhost:8080 then it display not resource found
7) then I go to tomcat directory and opened setclasspath ,Startup but nothing is useful

Please suggest what went wrong?

You'll have to deploy a web application in Tomcat, otherwise there will be nothing to see at http://localhost:8080

I am confused. You said "I want to just start tomcat inside Eclipse", but in your first post you said (for step 6) "If I start the server then server started". How did you start Tomcat in step 6? I thought you did it within Eclipse because in step 7 you talk about using the startup script to start Tomcat.

It appears to me that Tomcat is started (it did give you a resource not found error, right?). But, as Jesper pointed out, you will not see anything in the browser until you deploy an application.

Or maybe you really do just want to know how to start Tomcat in Eclipse: right-click on Tomcat in the Servers View and click on Start. The Console View should show the startup messages.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
