I know that tomcat is running because when I type http://localhost, the tomcat page dispay. My problem is I can’t figure out why the wtpwebapps/myapp is empty, is like the eclipse doesn’t publish it and when i type http://localhost/myapp, I get 404 error.
In the server overview :
- Server Location is set to “Use Tomcat installation” | server path: the servers’s folder | deploy path : wtpwebapps
- Server Option : Publish module contexts to separate XML file
- Publishing : Automatically publish when ressource change
I use eclipse Ganymede 3.4.2, tomcat 6.0, under Win7
Any help would be appreciated, thanks
your files must be somwhere, so start searching in:
I had a similar problem, when updating our project (
.classpath are checked in for convenience, but causes sometimes problems).
Console-Log in eclipse always says:
Error configuring application listener of class org.sth.ThisClass
The reason was that
$WORKSPACE_DIR/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.wst.server.core/tmp$NUMBER/wtpwebapps/$CONTEXT/WEB-INF/lib/classes was empty. The solution was to enter under
Project Properties > Deployment Assembly an entry:
If you use a Maven in your project, this is a solution for you:
- Delete the project(s) in the Eclipse.
- create project from Maven sources (select your workspace directory).
- Check found pom.xml to import.
Restart the Tomcat.
Try to look into servers explorer and it will show you what state is your application at and if its deployed.
Since I had difficulty finding where this “server overview” is, I like to add that you just double click on a server under the “servers” view. I kept on right click and look at the “Properties” and was not getting to this information.
