I am using Eclipse Luna on OS X Yosemite, and i have a static web project. I created a basic HTTP server on port 80, enabled publishing, set up the runtime environment to point to a folder where i can deploy to, and when I try to hit the server and see the app, it just says it cannot connect to localhost. If i use lsof there doesn't seem to be anything listening on port 80, i can't telnet to port 80 either. I changed the port to 8088 and 8080, and neither one works any better. I have a glassfish server also configured for a different project and it runs on localhost:8080 and works fine (i am not running both at the same time). The HTTP server says it is started and synchronized, and i can publish to it (apparently) but i cannot connect to it.

I believe the Basic HTTP Server is just a publishing mechanism and
doesn't involve the starting and stopping an actual server. It assumes
you have a server like Apache HTTP set up externally that will serve up
the content found in the folder you publish to.

Choose Basic HTTP Preview as your server if you want an actual server.
I believe it uses the version of Jetty that is built into Eclipse as the
server.

Cheers,
Larry

Forgot to mention that while BASIC HTTP Preview gives you an actual
server, you get minimal ability to configure this server. For example,
it is hard coded to use port 8080. You would have to change the port on
the glassfish server to something else if you wanted to run it at the
same time as the HTTP Preview server.
