Bringing standalone Axis project into Eclipse

I have an web service created with Axis and running on Tomcat. This was made years ago in a standalone setup and hasn't been touched since then.

Now I need to make some changes to the code to bring things up to date. So I created a Dynamic Web Project in Eclipse and have it associated with my Tomcat 6 server. I copied all of the source code into the src directory of the project. Before I make any changes, I want to get the project working as it was, but using Eclipse and my integrated Tomcat server.

However, I can't seem to even pull up the happyaxis page. How do I get Tomcat to recognize Axis? Previously, I copied Axis into the webapps dir, but I don't see how to do that with it integrated into Eclipse.

Oh, and I can't use Axis2 as this web service talks to some legacy apps and the WSDL is incompatible with Axis2.

TIA.

Welp, I ended up recreating the project using the WSDL's, and then copying the Impl code over.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
