Eclipse – How to disable the eclipse server startup timeout


By default when using a webapp server in Eclipse Web Tools, the server startup will fail after a timeout of 45 seconds. I can increase this timeout in the server instance properties, but I don't see a way to disable the timeout entirely (useful when debugging application startup). Is there a way to do this?

Best Solution

enter image description here In Eclipse Indigo, you can edit the default timeout by double-clicking on the server in the "servers" view and changing the timeout for start (see graphic). Save your changes, and you're good to go!
