There is a procedure of how to know what version of eclipse and what plugins were used on a project?

I have an old project eclipse (to be deployed on Apache Tomcat (my only reference)) and I need to know which version of eclipse was used and what plugins in order to revive it.

Is there a reason for being so "historical"? Why not just bring it up in
the latest Eclipse and one of the later Tomcats? The only way that won't
work is if the application was specifically tapping into Tomcat
internals that have changed since it was done. In my experience, it's
unlikely that this would have been the case and equally unlikely that
Tomcat would be the reason it won't work using "modern" tools.

Or, did you try and already know it won't work?

The application is on production since 2007. I just did what you suggested, but i get so many errors that make me think if may be is more simple replicate the scenario were the code was made.

List a few of those errors here for us. You mean missing symbol errors,
right?

I'm unfamiliar with these APIs, but I can confidently state that they
have nothing to do with Tomcat. Tomcat-Eclipse is not your problem.
You're simply missing some other library, likely a sort of presentation API.

Your old project should contain some clues. I'm not seeing enough of the
error messages to know what the package names are so I've been unable to
ascertain what library is missing.

You are right, the errors presented are from a library specific to the project.
I went through the code and most of the errors are missing references to STRUCT.

I'm trying to follow the path of using the latest eclipse to compile the project. I'll try to keep posting progress.
