The "generic" server code supports a minimal level of integration.
Primarily this means that publishing a project to the server involves
building a WAR or EAR file and copying to some folder where the server
is assumed to auto-serve that file. If you modify a JSP file and want
to publish that change to the server, it involves building a whole new
WAR are EAR file and replacing the file previously copied. It is
assumed the server will notice the change and redeploy the file.
The Tomcat server code supports a much higher level of integration.
Publishing a project involves copying individual files. If you modify a
JSP file, publishing that change to the server only involves copying
that JSP file. There is also more support for changing the actual
configuration of the server within Eclipse.
If you are intending to provide a higher level of integration, you may
find example code in the Tomcat source more useful in certain cases.
