This plugin is in the EasyEclipse Server Java distribution.
This plugin does not contain Tomcat: you must download and install it before using this plugin. You can download a recent version from the Apache Tomcat 5 Downloads page.
Before using the plugin, you must set Tomcat home : Window > Preferences, select Tomcat and set the Tomcat version and Tomcat home fields. Then start the Tomcat server by selecting the menu Tomcat > Start Tomcat. You can check in the Console view that the server starts correctly.
To create a new Tomcat project, select New > Project and select Tomcat. After creating a project, you can add JSP files at the root of the project, or Java files in the
WEB-INF/src folder, and immediately run them on the server, without any deployment step: for example, if you create a Tomcat project called
testprojectand you create a file
index.jspin it, then you can see you file by opening
http://localhost:8080/testproject/index.jsp(if your server runs on port 8080).
Note: This plugin launches Tomcat using the default JRE (Java Runtime) checked in Eclipse preferences (in Window > Preferences > Java > Installed JREs). This JRE must be a JDK (this is a Tomcat prerequisite): on Windows and Linux, you should use an EasyEclipse distribution that includes the Java JDK for Windows or Linux, rather than the Windows or Linux JRE.
