Using WTP 1.5 (GA).
I have tomcat (5.5) configured as a server. Why can't I browse the servlet's
API (using CTRL+F2)?

I don't find any command assigned to CTRL+F2 in my Eclipse, but I would
guess that you will need to attach source to the servlet API jar for
what you want to work. Assuming you are using Tomcat 5.0.x or 5.5.x,
you would expand the Tomcat runtime in the Package Explorer, right-click
on the servlet-api.jar, and select Properties. Select "Java Source
Attachment" and provide the path to the source files for the servlet
API. This will likely be under the "jsr154\src\share" folder where the
servlet API is found in the Tomcat source distribution. Not being
certain of the command you want to execute, you might need to also
specify the Javadoc Location. This can be found in your Tomcat
installation within the "tomcat-docs" web application.

I recall coming across code in WTP that caches this information, so I
think you will only have to specify it once per workspace.

Cheers,
Larry

Thanks (again),
Sorry - it's (SHIFT + F2)...
Why can't WTP do all that by itself - the location of the docs and sources
is standard for a tomcat installation (as you guided me here). I guess it's
standard for any of the server options also.
