The Tomcat support in Web Tools assumes it "owns" server.xml as does the
admin webapp. Setting up your server to have this dual ownership isn't
going to work very well. Virtually any interaction you have with the
Tomcat server from within Eclipse is going to destroy any changes you
may have made with the admin webapp.

However, if you plan only to observe and not "admin" from the admin
webapp, you can add it by double-clicking on the Tomcat server in the
Servers view. In the configuration editor which opens, switch to the
Modules page and click "Add External Web Module...". Define the context
and click OK. You will then need to update the server.xml under the
appropriate folder of the Servers project and at least add
privileged="true" to the context. You should also track down the
admin.xml context file being used by your Tomcat installation and update
the context configuration in the Eclipse server.xml with anything
appropriate, depending on which version of Tomcat you are using.
