What does WTP actually do at "Run at Server"-time? [message #174416] Thu, 13 July 2006 21:33

I'm interested to understand what WTP actually does when I right-click
on a .html (or .jsp) file in a "Dynamic Web Project" and do "Run at
Server". It appears not to actually copy or "deploy" anything to
Tomcat's home folder. Instead WTP appears to run it's "own" instance of
Tomcat with $CATALINA_HOME set to point at some mysterious undocumented
folder in the Eclipse workspace. What if my application needs changes to
Tomcat's server-wide configuration files (such as conf/server.xml) or if
I need extra files under $CATALINA_HOME/conf (to configure spring and/or
security filters or whatever). Where do I put these files? In the
"Server" project?

This stuff is not explained in the WTP documentation.

(I'm using WTP 1.0, Eclipse 3.1 and Tomcat 5.5)
