I have a webapp that I run on Tomcat that I made with a simple editor. I now want to open this and work on this project inside eclipse. How can I do it?

Tontang,
You can import the .war file into Eclipse. If you don't have a war file, just zip up the tomcat directory for the app and name it app.war.

Hi Jeanne,
Thanks for your reply. I warred up the app as your suggested. But Im still not sure how to get this thing up and running in eclipse. I first created a web project in eclipse, and then wen to file->import->archive file. But now I have a whole bunch of errors, and the directory structure to the left looks all screwed up. The errors are mainly due to none of packages being found. Also because I had to create a project first, the unwarred project has become a subproject or something it seems
