Hello!

I would like to develop this and that with Eclipse, Java, and Tomcat.

I've installed Tomcat with apt install tomcat8
In eclipse, New->Other->Server->Tomcat8.
Can't enter anything to the server name textbox, 5 minute google search, solution:

rm .metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.core.runtime/.settings/org.eclipse.wst.server.core.prefs
rm .metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.core.runtime/.settings/org.eclipse.jst.server.tomcat.core.prefs

Restart eclipse. Try again, works.

New error message when click the finish button somekind of config file doesn't exists:
Could not load the Tomcat server configuration at /usr/share/tomcat8/conf. The configuration may be corrupt or incomplete.
/usr/share/tomcat8/conf/catalina.policy (Nincs ilyen fájl vagy könyvtár)

Another five minutes of google,
sudo ln -s /etc/tomcat8/policy.d/03catalina.policy /usr/share/tomcat8/conf/catalina.policy

Problem solved.

Now new error on the bottom of eclipse window:
Description	Resource	Path	Location	Type
The container 'Apache Tomcat v8.0 [Apache Tomcat v8.0]' references non existing library '/usr/share/tomcat8/lib/commons-dbcp.jar'

That lib is exists under that directory.
ls /usr/share/tomcat8/lib/commons-dbcp.jar
/usr/share/tomcat8/lib/commons-dbcp.jar


I have a question: How can I install and configure it?

Update:

The libcommons-dbcp-java packege was not installed. After installation eclipse doen't complain about the jar, now the only problem is an error message:
Could not load the Tomcat server configuration at ... The configuration may be corrupt or incomplete.

You shouldn't develop using your "production" install. If nothing else, the distribution's packaging of Tomcat may have moved files around, compared to the downloadable Tomcat tarball, in ways that lead to these issues.

Download a .tar.gz file from https://tomcat.apache.org/download-80.cgi , unpack it somewhere under your home directory, and use that as your Tomcat runtime. Then get back to developing your web app.
