I installed (from friends of Eclipse) the Helios release today.

When I try to create a server to run my project on, the only things available were: "HTTP Preview" and "HTTP Server".

So, I hit the link "Download additional server adapters"

The resulting list contains Geronimo, Jetty, Jonas, SAP, and WASCE.
Is this on purpose or just a bug?

Is there a way to get adapters that are actually useful?

Tomcat support is built in, so you should see:

http://www.eclipse.org/webtools/releases/3.2.0/NewAndNotewor thy/server.php

I would guess you may be missing some dependency that is preventing the
Tomcat support from showing up. I'm not sure off the top of my head
what that would be though.

Cheers,
Larry

Could you detail exactly what you installed? For instance, did you install Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers or did you piece together your own configuration?

If option 2, chances are good that you've missed a dependency.

If option 1, I would guess that your Eclipse did not pickup a JVM that's compatible with all WTP components. Most WTP components require at least Java 5, while parts of Eclipse will work with Java 1.4. You can check in the about box under configuration to see which JVM Eclipse is running with. If it picked up the wrong one, you will need to edit eclipse.ini file to tell it which JVM to use. Just add the following to the start of the file...

-vm
[some-path]/javaw.exe

I installed the "Eclipse IDE for Java Developers" that came in my "friends of Eclipse" email as there was not one for Java EE devs.

From the Install new software dialog, I installed the WTP tools.

I'm running Java 1.6 update 20

Update:
I reviewed the Friends of Eclipse mail and noticed there are two links for Eclipse for Javascript devs.

Checking the URLs, I noticed one of them is actually for Java EE.

I downloaded and ran that one and everything seems to be much better (all kinds of servers in the list).

WooHoo!!!
