Hi,

I am building a web application and using Eclipse 3.1. I installed the Tomcat sysdeo plugin. The problem I encounter is that when I start my tomcat from the Eclipse plugin I get this exception:

exception

When I start my tomcat from the startup.bat file inside tomcat\bin, I do not get any exceptions. Where am i going wrong? Am I supposed to include all jar files in my WEB-INF\lib including the servlet-api.jar?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
