Installing Tomcat6 to be able running in Eclipse on Ubuntu
I’ve run through several issues while trying to set Tomcat 6 running embedded in Eclipse on Ubuntu 11.04. This solution worked for me.
sudo apt-get install tomcat6 tomcat6-*
sudo ln -s /var/lib/tomcat6/conf /usr/share/tomcat6/conf sudo ln -s /etc/tomcat6/policy.d/03catalina.policy /usr/share/tomcat6/conf/catalina.policy sudo ln -s /var/log/tomcat6 /usr/share/tomcat6/log sudo chmod -R 777 /usr/share/tomcat6/conf
After running this you are now able to embed Tomcat in Eclipse and use it as usually. Pffff.
