I prefer to use the sysdeo plugin to integrate tomcat with eclipse.

To expand on what Maneesh said, Eclipse itself doesn't know anything at all about J2EE or Tomcat. However, one of the standard Eclipse downloads does come with J2EE development support plug-ins pre-installed. One of those plug-ins is the WTP plugin and it can run Tomcat, although it does a horrible job of it. Which is why Maneesh and myself prefer to install the sysdeo Tomcat plug-in and ignore WTP server/webapp management altogether.

There are, I think, other Tomcat interface plug-ins out there as well, but I don't have firsthand knowledge of any of them.
