I installed tomcat7 by the command
sudo apt-get install tomcat7. So far so good I wanted to create a new server in eclipse with tomcat7 and went to preferences -> servers -> runtime environments and added tomcat7 with the path "/usr/share/tomcat7" which was set by default. I created a project with dynamic web content where tomcat7 was already selected. I switched to the Java EE perspective and to the server view. It was no server defined so I wanted to define one with the new server wizard which didn't allow me to create a new tomcat7 server with the message "cannot create a server using the selected type".
So I searched the solution in google and found this blog
I couldn't find the .metadata folder in my workspace, therefore I created a new workspace since my other workspace seems to be corrupt. Doing that and the steps 1 to 3 in the blog didn't solve my problem.
I hope anyone of you could help me out.
- Ubuntu 12.04
- Eclipse Indigo JEE 3.7
- Tomcat 7
Thanks in advance
