My issue is broad enough that I'm a little dubious about getting concrete assistance--I think I may need to dig some more.

Eclipse on OSX, using WTP and Tomcat. I have both the Tomcat that gets installed by Apple's xcode developer tools, as well as one I've installed myself from the Jakarta site.

Initially, I was deploying from Eclipse to the non-xcode Tomcat and it was in general deploying properly and running, except: I was getting an error in one of my Tiles (/Welcome.jsp not found) which seemed to be causing a recursive call inside the tile.

When I tried setting up the xcode Tomcat as a server, Eclipse didn't seem to properly deploy to it (e.g. never modified the server.xml, resources never got deployed, etc).

When I exported a WAR to the xcode Tomcat webapps dir, it loads just fine and works just fine (e.g. doesn't have that tiles recursive problem).

I know this is grasping at straws, but does this ring any bells for anyone?

(This is all slightly complicated by the fact that the existing development team has been on Windows and now we're switching to OSX... but this doesn't *appear* to be, at this point, an OS-dependent problem).

Thanks...

By default, creation of a Web Tools Tomcat server in Eclipse
deliberately doesn't modify your existing Tomcat installation. For
details, see the Tomcat FAQ (http://wiki.eclipse.org/WTP_Tomcat_FAQ).

Does the xcode Tomcat start and stop successfully within Eclipse when no
projects are added? Hopefully you can tell from log output the Console
view.

Cheers,
Larry

Ah -- thanks for the pointer to the FAQ; I hadn't found that.

I believe the xcode Tomcat is starting & stopping fine from Eclipse, but I will confirm later this evening.

Thanks!

If it starts and stops fine, the we will need to get into more detail
about what is going wrong when you add a project, given that you won't
see any evidence of that addition in your Tomcat installation (unless
the "Use Tomcat installation" configuration option has been selected).

Cheers,
Larry

Larry -- that did the trick. I was meticulous about setting up the server following those FAQs, used my own location, and it seems to be working now. Thanks!

(was also complicated by the fact that the existing developers did some weirdness with configuring application context and port #s within the app... huh?)
