By creation, I mean it has some deafult VM settings;
where do they come from?
can I edit or set any preferance whereby the default VM settings; are
appended with a few of my own (sparing me the effort of editing the launch
configuration, every time I creat a server instance)
PS: For some reason; I need to 're-cycle' (delete & create-new) the server
instance a lot of times.

What needs to be done to "fix up" a default launch configuration is
either dynamic or fixed, so there isn't much to gained by a resource
bundle lookup. You can start with the
class found in the tomcat.core plug-in. That is where the Tomcat
plug-in applies it's required changes to the launch configuration.
You can also look at
org.eclipse.wst.server.core.Server.getLaunchConfiguration() to see where
the launch configuration "originates". A quick look didn't seem to show
