eclipse web app can not find lib after turning on tomcat

Last Modified: 2013-11-24
I used to be able to run web apps from eclipse with no problem using the config dialog to set Java EE module dependencies.

at certain time, I set up the tomcat on the system to run outside of eclipse. ever since then the eclipse web apps only sees the lib inside the tomcat installation dir. It ignores the eclipse dialog settings and can not even find the class files under the eclipse project WEB-INF/classes.

any one knows this symptom? did I mess up a configuration somewhere?
