Integrating Eclipse Eclipse-SDK-3.1-win32 with Tomcat 5.5

Hello I am using Eclipse referenced above, SDK 3.1, win 32 with Tomcat 5.5

My question is, can I install a server with this combination of Eclipse and Tomcat or not?

I have read various articles showing me to install software off the help menu to help me enable my Eclipse to be able to have a server Tomcat, but it will not work.

Also, I have installed Tomcat 5.5 and it shows the start page successfully.

I have a web project with a jdk 1.5 that needs an older version of Eclipse and Tomcat to run.

Thanks,
Michele

I can understand the need for an older version of Tomcat, but you should be able to use a recent version of Eclipse to do your coding. Eclipse will let you specify the JDK level and servlet/jsp specification you want.

The other option is to search for a copy of the web took kit (WTP) that works with 3.1 and install it. Though it might be easier to go up to 3.3 and install the Europa package for Java EE: http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/packages/release/europa/winter
