I'm returning to Eclipse after a long absence, so please forgive me for not knowing anything.

I installed Eclipse Classic. I then installed the JavaScript IDE, and lost all tutorial access. I created a JavaScript Project and copies my .css and .html files, hoping to use Eclipse to rewrite my .js files.

When I try to Run or Debug my .html file for some test-first development, I get the "Unable to Launch" error, which states "The selection cannot be launched, and there are no recent launches."

When I go to Run Configurations, it tells me that I have no server selected, but the server pull-down menu has no entries. I don't want to use a server until I get my project working; I just want to debug it in FireFox until it's ready to be released.

What am I doing wrong?

If I can't figure this out, I'll abandon Eclipse and go back to Notepad++.

If you're looking to debug purely client-side code within Firefox, just open it in Firefox. Otherwise you'll need either a Dynamic or Static Web Project to deploy it to a Server instance. You can't deploy a JavaScript Project.
