Hi all,

I am trying to integrate tomcat 7 in eclipse indigo. I downloaded tomcat 7 plugin and copied in to eclipse plugin folder. I am getting tomcat start, stop and restart icon in tomcat tool bar. But when i click on start tomcat icon it says "tomcat settings should be configured in a tomcat preference". Could anyone help me to start the tomcat server in eclipse indigo by giving the step by step procedure. Thanks in advance...

Since you said that you "downloaded the Tomcat plugin", I figure that you did one of two things:

1. Downloaded Tomcat and placed it in the Eclipse plugin folder. Tomcat isn't the tomcat plugin, so you shouldn't do that. Tomcat should be installed in a directory that's completely external to Eclipse.

2. Downloaded a third-party Tomcat manager such as the sysdeo plugin. I know sysdeo pretty well, but it's not the only Tomcat plugin available, and they will differ on how you configure them.

The WTP plugin comes already installed when you download and install the J2EE spin of Eclipse Indigo. But personally, I hate it, so I install sysdeo and ignore WTP.

In the particular case of the sysdeo plugin, it will add icons to your toolbar like you described, as well as equivalent menu controls. To actually use it, you must employ the Window/Preferences menu and select the Tomcat options. You'll have to tell the plugin where your Tomcat home directory is, which version of Tomcat it is, and various other minor details. If you have existing Eclipse web projects that you want to be able to debug in tomcat, select them in the Tomcat/source path preferences topic.


Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.

Hey this was quick

anyways

download a sysdeo plugin and place the unzipped file in the plugin folder of your eclipse environment.

Restart click ...You will be able to see three icons for Start/Stop/Restart of Tomcat on the eclipse Workbench.

Now.on navigate to Windows-->Preferences-->Locate Tomcat and click ....Select the version-->path of the home directory...And done.!!!

Start the tomcat ...you can see it running in the Console window.

Cheers!
