If a user starts a server outside eclipse, what is the expected behavior
in the server tab? For my server, it just shows blank (should be started)
and the Refresh Status option I've read a bit about seems to be absent.
I'm using one of the 3.4 RC candidate builds - perhaps that menu item is
removed in newer builds? Is there something I need to add to my adapter
to keep the status in sync with the actual server?

Thanks,
Rochelle

Currently, there isn't a good way for Eclipse to "connect" to an already
running Tomcat server when Eclipse starts, given that you can define
multiple Tomcat servers using the same or different Tomcat
installations. As a result, if you were to try to start the server
within Eclipse, it would complain that the ports are already in use and
refuse to start. You would need to stop the externally started server
before you could start it within Eclipse.

Note that by default, the WTP Tomcat support creates a separate instance
of Tomcat for the server within Eclipse. This Eclipse Tomcat server can
be run simultaneously with the installed Tomcat provided you update port
numbers to not conflict. For details about the Tomcat support see:
http://wiki.eclipse.org/WTP_Tomcat_FAQ.

Cheers,
Larry
