can anybody tell how to integrate eclipse and tomcat i am using 3.5 eclipse i put com.sysdeo.eclipse.tomcat_3.0.0 in c:/eclipse/plugin i am not getting tomcat in window-preference can anybody explain detail please? thanks in advance
I installed sysdeo in Eclipse Ganymede and it found everything, but it no longer worked reliably. I went back and checked, and apparently the sysdeo plugin hasn't been maintained since 2007.
I'm disappointed. The WTP server is nowhere near as good. Unlike the sysdeo plug-in, it tries to get actively involved in the Tomcat server; but not actively involved enough. Stuff that ran just fine in sysdeo can't find resources in the WTP server, I fight the server configuration stuff constantly (for one thing, it's no longer in plain view like it was for sysdeo), it won't give the freedom I need to locate resources or even set context names, and to add insult to injury, it wants to stuff the contexts into server.xml to maintain Tomcat3 compatibility even though even Tomcat4 passed end-of-life years ago. So now I'm stuck using an external Tomcat.
