I tried your settings and they worked for me. Did you refresh the |
"tomcat" folder in your workspace. You may not see changes until you

the Module (i.e. Project) name, then you will get two copies of the
webapp served. For info about the WTP Tomcat support see the Tomcat

the Java build output into "webcontent"/WEB-INF/classes and has the
disadvantage of making the classes appear as source in the "webcontent"
portion of your project. You can leave the default output directory
pointing to "build/classes" and publishing will put the classes in the
right location when creating the copy of the webapp that actually gets
