Hello,

I have been told this can done but all I can find are ways to add a tomcat server that must be started with eclipse. I want/need to run/deploy my eclipse stuff to a tomcat server that is already running (started already outside of eclipse).

Can someone please tell me how to add it and have eclipse recognize that it running when for example you try to run on server without trying to start it?

Thanks in advance.

The WTP Tomcat support expects to start and stop the Tomcat process so
it can connect to stdout and stderr, among other reasons. You could
determine where WTP is publishing the project for the internal Tomcat
and arrange for the external Tomcat to serve that directory. You could
run the internal Tomcat on different ports. Or, not run it at all,
just publish to it. For information about the WTP Tomcat support, see
the Tomcat FAQ[1].

Cheers,
Larry
