Eclipse cannot add Tomcat server in Ubuntu Linux [message #1008874] Wed, 13 February 2013 21:56 Go to next message

I was trying to add a Tomcat server in Eclipse Java EE IDE in Ubuntu. When I click "Add new server" in Eclipse and select "Tomcat v7.0 Server", the field "Server Name" is blank and I cannot type in anything in that textbox as shown below:

The textbox becomes completely frozen up and I can't type anything in that box. What I did before is I deleted a Tomcat server from Eclipse and I was trying to reinstall the Tomcat by clicking the "New Server Wizzard". But it doesn't allow me to type anything in that textbox and I cannot proceed to the "Next" button. My environment is Ubuntu Linux and Eclipse for JavaEE.

I even reinstalled the whole Eclipse Java EE but it didn't help. I did the same in Windows version of Eclipse Java EE and it is fine. So is there any bug reported on Linux version?

Hi,

You need to first create a Tomcat 7 runtime before you can create a
server for it.

Go to Windows->Preferences->Servers->Installed Runtimes and add (point
to) an installed Tomcat 7 installation on your system.

Thanks for your info. I solved the problem finally by myself. I think there is a bug in the Eclipse Java EE Juno version for Linux version.

What I did is:

Something is hidden in org.eclipse.jst.server.tomcat.core.prefs

So in order to solve the problem

close eclipse
go to {workspace-directory}/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.core.runtime/.settings
remove the files org.eclipse.wst.server.core.prefs and org.eclipse.jst.server.tomcat.core.prefs

This will solve my problem.

I think Linux version of Eclipse JavaEE Juno has a bug for this. But Windows version is fine.

I just had the same problem on windows on my Eclipse Juno, and solved it when deleting the 2 files.

I just had the same problem on Mac OS X 10.8 with Eclipse Kepler I solved it by deleting the 2 files. Maybe it is a bug with the version of JST Server Adapters. I'm using version 3.2.201.v20130123_1813-20A87w31241234a2924

Thanks for posting the solution.
