Unless you're planning on really serving up Java pages from your Windows
desktop, you don't need to install Tomcat. Just point Eclipse at it
(Window -> Preferences -> Server -> Runtime Environment -> Add -> Apache
Tomcat v6.0 -> Next -> Browse to
Then just launch your web application, to run or to debug, and Eclipse
will launch Tomcat for you.
You do not need to touch CATALINA_HOME.
