Hey all,

I have this Dynamic Webpage Project which I have converted to a Maven project.
It was set to use the Tomcat 7 server which I have installed locally.

All worked fine until, without changing anything other than a jsp file, I got the following message when trying to run the file.
"Server Error"
The selection cannot be run on any server.


I didn't change anything to the server nor the configurations between the time when it worked and when it gave this error.

I have tried the following already, without avail:


  1. Restarting Eclipse
  2. Removed and re-added the tomcat server
  3. Checked if the correct project facets were still selected (they are)
  4. Check whether tomcat 7 starts without errors (it does)
  5. Check if the maven build completes without errors (it does)
  6. Re-installed and re-added the tomcat server
  7. Re-installed Eclipse
  8. Blame windows


I haven encountered this problem before, but then eventually I abandoned the project and started a new one recycling as many files as possible.
Hence I would really like to figure out what is causing this.

I'm using Eclipse Kepler for Java EE Development
And I probably should mention that my project is set up to work with the Hibernate JPA.

Many thanks in advance,

For questions relating to web development, you'll get better results asking in the "Web Tools Project (WTP)" forum

I'm sorry, I was a bit confused as to where to ask this.
Any chance a moderator can move this thread then?
