Technical Information

IDE: Eclipse Kepler
Server: Tomcat 7.0.42 | Previous version: 1.0;
Issue, can't properly add a new version of Tomcat Server V7.0

Greetings,

For some unknown reason, after deleting the tomcat server from both the server fast tab and the window > Preference > Servers, and then adding it back to from the windows menu, whenever I start a new Dynamic web project and try to pick a Tomcat Server V7.0, I can't; neither is possible from the link in the fast tab menu.

I attached a screenshot of how it looks to me.

Hoping anyone could give me a hand with this issue,

Thanks for reading.

I don't follow: what happens when you click on Tomcat v7.0 in the list?

I have also experienced this problem with Eclipse Kepler running on Fedora 18. I executed these steps to create new Server in Eclipse:

1. Click Server tab
2. Click link to create new server
3. Highlight Tomcat v7.0 Server

Server host name is set to localhost
Server name is blank

Next> button is not active. Only Cancel button is available.

If I selected Tomcat v6.0 Server, the server host name is localhost and server name is populated. Next> button is active.

I have attempted to remove the runtime and add it again with no success. I found a Juno fix by removing some config files, but it did not work either. Is there another fix for Kepler?

This may be a bug. I don't use 7 (just saying, not making a point of
it), but I had no trouble creating a Tomcat 6 server in Kepler. Perhaps
you should go to the trouble of submitting a bug report. If you bring
this issue up in the Eclipse web tools forum, which is really where this
should have been asked in the first place, someone there might want to
do it for you since it's pretty important. (I'm not a moderator and
can't move this thread.)

hi guys,

Just to let you know, I've just got the same issue here with Kepler EE (Build id: 20130614-0229).

After deleting a Tomcat server, I can't create another instance for 7.0 version.

Regards,
falico

I've just posted and found the solution in stackoverflow (stackoverflow.com/questions/14791843/eclipse-add-tomcat-7-blank-server-name):

Quote:
1. Close Eclipse
2. In {workspace-directory}/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.core.runtime/.settings delete the following two files:
org.eclipse.wst.server.core.prefs
org.eclipse.jst.server.tomcat.core.prefs
3. Restart Eclipse

Hi! I know that somebody fix the problem deleting this two links

org.eclipse.jst.server.tomcat.core.prefs
org.eclipse.wst.server.core.prefs

But for me is impossible, I have Ubuntu 12.04, Tomcat7 and Eclipse Indigo.
If delete this 2 links when add the server again, the links pop-up again and I'm in the same situation.

Could someone help me? I'm very frustated...

Thanks in advance.

Just what is the "same situation"?

I just downloaded Tomcat 7 and add it to my workbench. I'm running Mint
13 (Ubuntu 12.04) and Indigo.

Mir:

Nothing happened when I tried to do what Chintan Popat had suggested below i.e. to uninstall "JST Server Adapters Extensions".

However, what Rodrigo Faria posted below worked for me.
