Hi,

You can start the tomcat server using tomcat.exe. In tomcat old version there is file called start.bat. But in this latest version there is no such file. I think they had modified start.bat into tomcat.exe
Just try it.

I think if you add tomcat-plugin to your eclipse, then you open eclipse,go to Window->Preferences, and you will see Tomcat in the left and click it,set the correct version of tomcat and select the location of Tomcat Home. I think if these are set correctly,your problem will be solved.Hope this helps you.

JAVA_HOME and JRE_HOME should not have a semi-colon on the end

eg
JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-1.6.0.03
