I want to use tomcat server with eclipse ide.I have downloaded the tomcat plug in and placed it in eclipse plug in folder.But i am not able to debug my application.tomcat is getting started with the default eclipse run command(run icon) .After that when I am trying to hit default tomcat homepage with url http://localhost808 on browser,it can't open the required.Where as I tried it with star.bat file from tomcat folder. it's working fine.
After putting the plug ins i tried with the icon appears on the eclipse(it is not the default for eclipse.after putting the plugins it did appear.(run,stop,refresh)).then also it is working fine.but i am not able to debug.
so please suggest me a way where i can run tomcat with debug mode.
i have attached the screen shot so that people may not get confused with icons i have mentioned
Which version of Eclipse? Are you using Eclipse IDE for Java Developers or Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers. I use both. For web applications I use Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers and do not need to download any plugins. Debugging with Tomcat just works "out of the box".

That version looks really old. My version is
Eclipse Java EE IDE for Web Developers.
Version: Helios Service Release 1
Build id: 20100917-0705
As I said, this version allows me to debug Tomcat without having to download any plugins. Are you able to upgrade?
