I'm running the Oxygen 1a Release (4.7.1.a) on a 64-bit PC, created from the following tarball:

eclipse-jee-oxygen-1a-linux-gtk-x86_64.tar.gz

I have been running Eclipse for months to debug a java web application. My host crashed and my Eclipse directory got corrupted. I reinstalled Eclipse and brought it up and I am in the process of setting up the environment. My project has been installed. Then I tried to create a 'Debug Configuration" by selecting "Run--->Debug Confuguration..." from the top menu bar of the Eclipse window. The "Debug Configuration" window popped up. The left sub-window lists the following types of configurations:

Apache Tomcat
Eclipse Application
Eclipse Data Tools
Generic Server
HTTP Preview
J2EE Preview
Java Applet
Java Application
JUnit
Junit Plug-in Test
Launch Group

I thought that months ago, there was something like "Web JEE Project" in the selection.

Is my memory in error?

Assuming, the list is correct, which configuration type from the list above do I use for a Web JEE Project?

Thanks in advance for any help.

The Oxygen release is from 2017. Please use a newer one.

You would use the Run on Server action to debug your web application. The normal launch configuration setup is not flexible enough to support
deploying multiple projects at the same time to the same server instance, while letting you configure that server instance using persistent files
located in the Servers project.

Yes, it is time to upgrade. I don't like doing it very often because of the start up time to come up to speed on a new release, but it is definitely time to do so.
