the successor to sysdeo (and mongrel) for launching tomcat from eclipse

August 27th, 2016 by Jeanne Boyarsky

I’ve been using Mongrel to launch Tomcat in one click from Eclipse. In Neon, this stopped working. I learned in a comment on that blog post that there’s now a plugin called “Eclipse Tomcat Plugin 9.1.0” that does the same thing. It is advertised as being a successor to Sysdeo. And it is. But so was Mongrel. However, it works in Neon and does the same thing as Sysdeo/Mongrel so it is logically a successor to both!

The process was easy to get going:

  1. Uninstall Mongrel
  2. Restart Eclipse
  3. Install Eclipse Tomcat Plugin 9.1.0
  4. Restart Eclipse
  5. Preferences
  6. Tomcat  – choose version of Tomcat path and Tomcat home

That’s it!
