I know I can go to the server view and start tomcat. A couple of
questions here:

1) Should I be able to "see" tomcat from an external browser? If I
launch firefox and go to http://localhost:8080/ I get the 404 error.
Eclipse claims the server started, status="started", state="synchronized"

2) Every time I "run as"..."run on server" I get a popup window asking
about "update context root". Is this normal to get this window every time?

Thanks!

Your first question has been answered a few times in this forum. Take a
look at the following thread:

It is expected behavior to get the popup "update context root" every
time you perform "run on server". Having said that, you should feel free
to open an enhancement request in bugzilla if you think that this
behavior is sub-optimal.

Thank you!

I don't care if I get the "update context root" message as long as I
know that everyone else gets it too.

By the way, what exactly does it mean to "update context root"? What
would happen if I unchecked the box?

At one point in time, that was the only UI way to alter the context-root
specified for a project, see Bug 118727[1]. It's still there offering
you a chance to change it "on the fly". To avoid it, just click Finish
before you get there.

Cheers,
Larry
