I have Websphere7 and Eclipse (Version: Indigo Service Release 1) installed on my machine. Is it possible to configure websphere7 server in Eclipse? I have used RAD which has in built websphere servers configured, but not sure how to do this in Eclipse. Please advise.

MyEclipse is the only way other than RAD that I am aware of to get an embedded WebSphere Server; however, it is not free. Are you leveraging features that are container specific? If not, just leverage Tomcat 7 or Glassfish 3 embedded.

Hi Michael,
Thank you for your post. Actually I am in need to set up Open Office tool to create .doc on fly with dynamic data. Looking at the forum of Open Office, they provided the installation/user guide for NetBean and Eclipse. I selected Eclipse as I am bit familiar with this IDE than NetBean.

Now I am able to configure websphere7 in Eclipse after installing the plugins in Eclipse IDE. I am able to run the server in Eclipse and could run 'Hello Word' jsp. (i.e. test jsp).

With resolving server configuration issue, I see a weird error when I open a test jsp in IDE.
ERROR: The connection was refused when attempting to contact localhost:0

However, I can successfully run the jsp on server. Could you please advise what could be the reason for this error and the resolution for this?

Thank you

This is resolved. I had installed Websphere Java tool along with websphere 7 plugin which was causing the error. After unstalling the Webspher tool. issue is resolved.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
