  • Using/installing Tomcat 6 with STS

    I have tried a couple of times to install Tomcat 6 with STS but I encounter odd problems. The first odd problem is that when I start my Tomcat server in the Servers window, the server does not appear to be able to find the default Root webapp.

    1. install Tomcat 6 via STS preferences (verify the webapps folder contains Root)
    2. select Tomcat 6 server in Servers view
    3. click the start icon
    4. Check the console for successful start
    5. Open web browser
    6. Navigate to http://localhost:8080

    Expect to see Tomcat default page come up, Instead pick up a 404 error "The requested resource (/) is not available."

    The server is clearly running but the configuration appears to be hosed in some way.

    So I tried installing a guest instance of Tomcat (install tomcat 6, then run tomcat-instance-create) but now STS won't add the server to my server list.

    Any suggestions?

    What version of STS are you using? And did you download STS from our distribution site (and unzip/tar) or did you install it into an Eclipse via an update site? If the latter, what version of Eclipse are you running?
