It appears to me like WTP may be sending a (test?) HTTP request to my server after launch is complete. I'm using Tomcat with Eclipse Web Developer Tools version 3.3.1.v201107072200-7O7IFhREMiB5vNoYqf01XHTvUndyz-yx-9kUyXXL|
Build id: 20100921193530. My questions are:
* Is it true that WTP sends a test/probe HTTP request to the server after launch?
* Is this documented anywhere?
* Is there any configuration associated with this, can it be disabled?

Sorry to take so long to respond. I believe the current behavior is to
simply wait for a connection. I don't think it currently checks the
response in any way. You are welcome to enter a Bugzilla enhancement
request. Since my cycles available for WTP these days are pretty
limited, it would very likely need a patch to get the feature added.
Default behavior would be the same as the current behavior.
