Tomcat server installation

I installed Apache tomcat on port 8080(default). It installs as a service. If i start it as a service, I am able to access http://localhost:8080
However if I stop the service and start the server configured in Eclipse, I get -404.
I tried to do the setup on 9080 but exactly the same issue.

I do have Jboss configured on the same port but I havent started that server. It would have given error 8080 in use anyways if that was the issue. Any Clues??
