2.2.8? Are you sure you are talking about Tomcat? The current version is 6! And 7 probably isn't long to come.

This is definitely not Apache Tomcat. It's almost certainly Apache httpd, a/k/a, simply "Apache". Firstly, because back when Tomcat was in the 2.x releases, PHP was somewhere around releae 3 or earlier, not version 4 or 5. Secondly, because PHP is normally run as an Apache plug-in, not a Tomcat plug-in.

Even Tomcat 3 is so ancient that you'd find the skeletons of dinosaurs and proto-avians among the files. To say nothing of the fact that it's totally unsupported these days.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
I agree. Here's the link:
