Windows XP Pro
Tomcat 5.0.28
WTP 1.5

I just downloaded and installed WTP 1.5 (all-in-one).
I blew away my workspace from WTP 1.0.2, checked my project out of CVS, and
configured my existing Tomcat installation in Eclipse.

When I try to start Tomcat from within Eclipse, I get the following error:
Can't load server.xml
Can't load server.xml

I never had a problem with WTP 1.0.2, and I can start Tomcat from a command
line.
Any ideas?


Thanks in advance.

Double-click on the server in the Servers view. Then in the
configuration editor that opens, click "Open launch configuration".
Under the VM Arguments tab of the launch configuration, note the path
specified by catalina.base. What is that path, and is there a
server.xml file in the "conf" folder at that location?

Your error implies there is no server.xml file in that "conf" folder or
the file is for some reason unreadable or corrupt.

Cheers,
Larry
