I was trying to create a dynamic web project in elipse.For this I need to create a server project .The problem is even though I was able to launch apache tomcat from outside eclipse tool, like startup and shutdown etc.
I followed these steps for creating the project 1.control panel ->admin tools-> services stopped tomcat. 2.opened eclipse -->selected workspace->gave project name -->selcted tomcat base dir -->added the server .
but when I clicked on the Run As -->Run On Server it shows ports 8005 8080 8009 are aleady in use.
I am using windows vista home edition on sony vaio machine.
