Help needed for the first J2EE project in eclipse running on apach

I'm new to J2EE and I'm starting to study it.

I love Eclipse and I would like to use it to J2EE development.

So I installed the J2EE plugin on eclipse.

I install the tomcat 5.5 on Ubuntu.

This is a support help request for having eclipse/tomcat/J2EE working.

for now when I'm try to "Run on Server" I have a popup message:
   The Tomcat server configuration at /Servers/Tomcat v5.5 Server @ localhost-config is missing. Check the server for errors
What is wrong?

Make sure that Tomact is working on its own. Try to start/stop it manually & check the http://localhost:8080 of course.

If Tomcat is running from inside Eclipse:
1) File->New->Other->Server->Apache-Tomcat v5.5
2) You will be prompted to choose
      i) Name
      ii) Tomcat Home directory
      iii) An installed JRE to use.

Now you can use the run on server option. (Note that you might have to declare on which server it should be run from the project properties).

Good Luck!
