No Window/Preferences/Server menu in Ubuntu

I'm running Ubuntu 11.04, with Eclipse 3.5.2 installed from the repository. Everywhere I've searched, I'm told to go to the Window/Preferences/Sever/Runtime Environments menu to configure Tomcat to run in Eclipse. But I don't seem to have a Server section.

I have the following.
  • General
  • Ant
  • Help
  • Install/Update
  • Java
  • Plug-in Development
  • Run/Debug
  • Team


  • What am I missing?

    Never mind. Turns out I had to install the Web Tools plug in for Eclipse.

    How did you install Eclipse on Ubuntu? Did you go through the package manager? I recommend that you don't do that, instead download Eclipse from the Eclipse web site (get the "Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers" package) and install that. Installation is easy - simply unpack the file; I put mine at /opt/eclipse. Then add it to the start menu and you are ready to go.

    I did it through the package manager.

    I'm still having trouble getting it to see Tomcat, but I think I found a solution.

    Check out the Sysdeo Plugin Works even with the eclipse classic versions

    I went and downloaded the EE version of Eclipse and was able to get Tomcat working that way.
