Hello friends,

I installed TomCat 7.0.26 and integrated with Eclipse Indigo ans everything is working properly. The problem is once i start tomcat it works and when try to stop it nothing happens. i.e it keeps running in the background. Even if i close eclipse tomcat comes up with its homepage in my browser.

Any ideas regarding this???

Did you install Tomcat as a "service" or as an "application"?

How are you starting Tomcat?

How are you trying to stop Tomcat?

No; actually i downloaded zip file from apache site.

I unzipped it in C drive.

I integrated it with eclipse and copied the ROOT folder from webapps direcory of tomcat and placed it in eclipse workspace at the following location

worksapce\.metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.wst.server.core\tmp1\wtpwebapps

and replaced the ROOT folder which was present at this location.

Now am starting tomcat from eclipse server tab.

And stopping it from from eclipse server tab. Eclipse shows the message that server is stopped, but when i close eclipse and try accessing tomcat with localhost:8080 it comes up with its welcome page.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
