  Asked By: Nisha    Date: Jul 20    Category: Java    Views: 915

I am trying to configure TOMCAT Webserver in Eclipse and am not able to do that.
Guidance on the matter would be highly appreciated.

Also, how can I access local jsp page which is on the WebApps folder in
Webserver from Browser ?

You need to first download tomcat  plugin for eclipse.
After installing tomcat, restart eclipse  with "eclipse.exe --clean"
Configure Tomcat in eclipse through Windows->preferences->tomcat.

To access  the jsp  pages directly, you have to append the jsp page  name you're trying to access to the web application context name. You can further, directly modify the jsp page inside the webapps folder  and by refreshing the browser  page see your changes immediatey. This is not a good thing to do, but sometimes helps with debugging.

I have configured Tomcat Server and am able to see jsp  examples of
Tomcat Webserver onto browser  from localhost:808.

I am using Windows XP, Tomcat Webserver 4.1, eclipse  3.4.1 and
installed sysdeo plugin in eclipse plugin folder  and than re launched
Eclipse and Server was running fine for me.

My Question:

When I try to run any jsp page  on Tomcat Server it says me that port
8080,8005,8010 are required port by Tomcat but as they are busy Tomcat
cannot start. Following this message I change configuration  of Port
and than I try to restart the server but still am getting same message
but this time with New Port numbers which I configured and so am not
sure what could be the reason for this ?

Any guidance  on the matter would be highly appreciated.
