Hello, I am using Eclipse 3.4.0 and a dynamic web project. I've created a
Tomcat 6 server from within Eclipse. But when I run my project ('Run on
Server'), the libraries that are on the build path for compiling are not
available on the server. I guess I'm assuming that deploying on the server
would place these libraries in WEB-INF/lib, but it doesn't seem to be
doing that. What is the right way to get this going?

I found that it worked to just link in the jars I need from the lib
directory of Tomcat (outside of Eclipse), it sounds like there are bugs
that require such a workaround for now.

For a dynamic web project, build path != runtime path. You can use the
Java EE Module Dependencies page of the project's Properties dialog to
identify runtime dependencies. Also, you should find items in the
Problems view related to these jars. Using the Quick Fix for those
items will have the same effect as using the Java EE Module Dependencies
page.

For details about the Tomcat support in WTP, see
http://wiki.eclipse.org/WTP_Tomcat_FAQ.

Cheers,
Larry
