Not able to hit default page of Tomcat 7.0

I have Ubuntu using as OS and recently installed Eclipse JUNO.

I have installed Tomcat 7.0 on my eclipse but whenever I am starting Tomcat from eclipse and using http://localhost:8080/ it's not showing the main page. I remember when I was using Tomcat 5 in eclipse it was showing the same problem but when I changed tomcat configuration to enable "Use Tomcat Installation" option it just worked fine. In my current setup that option is also disable so don't know what to do?

Any help please?

I'm moving this question to the IDEs forum because the Eclipse WTP plugin does horrible WTP-specific things to Tomcat's run configuration.

Any idea guys to resolve this?

Or should I move back to previous version of Tomcat?

You might want to consider using the sysdeo plugin

If you are trying to use the sysdeo plugin like Maneesh suggested, that dialog doesn't have anything to do with sysdeo. The sysdeo configuration is done as a subtopic of the Help/Preferences/Tomcat menu.

Yes you are correct, basically I am not able to run it via my eclipse. Any help, now I have posted my error as well...

Are you getting a 404 error? I think that Eclipse uses a separate webapps directory where is deploys its apps to, so the typical apps the are deployed with Tomcat by default are not available. Is there a reason you want to see the Tomcat home page other than having a good feeling about it being installed/configured correctly? If so, just getting a 404 error from Tomcat should be enough to tell you it is working (if it was not working you'd get an error about the URL being inaccessible - stop Tomcat and try the URL again and notice that the error is completely different).
