Simple steps to configure Apache Tomcat with Eclipse IDE

1. Start eclipse by executing eclipse.exe

2. Select/create a workspace.

3. Download latest tomcat zip version, unzip into a folder.

4. Open the server's view. If you can't see servers view, go to 'Window > Show view' and select 'Servers'. If you can't find there, go to 'Window > Show view > others > Server > Servers'.

5. Within the 'Servers' view, you can right click, and from the context menu, go to 'New > Server'; or if a new wizard link is available within the servers view, click the new server wizard link.

6. In the New Server wizard page, select your tomcat version under Apache section, leave the defaults and click next.

7.In the next screen, browse and provide the tomcat base folder, which we had created earlier.

8. Click finish and your server will appear in the Servers view. You can start and stop your tomcat just by right clicking on the server.
