I do servlets & JSPs all the time in a WSAD environment all set up for me, but I've never set up a new one for myself. To try it at home, I got Tomcat & Sysdeo plugged into my Eclipse environment but don't know where to set up applications.

The Tomcat sample app sets up like this in the Tomcat directory:

In Eclipse doing File/New/Tomcat Project got me an empty WEB-INF folder and that's about it. Following instructions from an IBM page I made an index.jsp in the project folder and //localhost:8080 shows it. Wow.

I'd like to set up my own projects to the standards used in sample with a webapps folder, web.xml file, etc. Can I put these folders into my Eclipse workspace somewhere or is Eclipse going to have a different structure for development? Is Sysdeo the best choice for this?

Thanks!!

Eclpise 3.1.0
Tomcat 5.5.16
Sysdeo 3.1
JDK 1.5.0_06
