Our team has been using the Sysdeo Tomcat plugin. This plugin still
works in Eclipse 3.4, but there hasn't been any updates in the last
year. We started to look at WTP and got overwhelmed by all of the
options/pieces/etc. Basically our app starts a servlet and our java
clients communicate to the server using persistent http.
Can anyone give us some pointers on migrating to WTP? We currently
have a project that contains the web.xml and Servlet class. I think
this project needs to be migrated to one of the WTP projects. I would
like to avoid changing our directory structure also.
We also use Maven for building our Eclipse projects. Can we build the
correct WTP project using Maven also?
Thanks in advance for any help.

You can use m2eclipse for this one . Starting from version 0.9.4,
it provides automatic project configuratior for the WTP projects, so you
can import existing Maven projects and configure them to work in WTP
. Please feel free to ask more questions about Maven support in
eclipse.technology.m2e newsgroup or in m2eclipse mailing lists .
Also note that m2eclipse project is being moved to Eclipse. Watch M2E
project page  for updates.
